Welcome to the Media Center
-Mark this day in your calendars- November 20
New Book and DVD Party
There are a large number of brand new books and DVDs that we'd love to have you check out. I'll have Post-it notes available so you can put your name on the books you'd like to read or DVDs you'd like to watch. Many times we have staff members ask to see our new books. This will give you a chance to get your hands on them BEFORE the students. We have some students known as "book-piranhas", but we'll hold 'em back!
