Celebrate the holidays, or honor a child's birthday, a special event like a wedding or anniversary, or the memory of a friend or loved one by becoming an Osprey Library Partner. The Media Center has brand-new books for you to place an inscription inside to honor that special person and donate to our library collection. After a donation is made, you can be the first person to checkout the new book! See Mrs. Friedman or Mrs. Parent to choose a book or browse the available choices below. Make checks payable to Daniel Island School. A completed form along with payment must accompany the book(s) you wish to donate.

Our Mission Statement and Philosophy

The mission of the Daniel Island School Library Media Center Program is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information and to empower students to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, skillful researchers, ethical users of information, and productive users of technology.


The Daniel Island Library Media Center supports the members of the elementary and middle communities in their academic, professional, and personal needs. Through collaboration and integration of information literacy skills, students will be able to function successfully in the 21st-century information society. The Library Media Center promotes reading and provides an educational environment that encourages, inspires, and stimulates students’ interests and appreciation for reading and learning.
