Library Media Department at Palm City Elementary

The PCE Library Media Center (LMC) of today is NOT just about BOOKS anymore! It’s about EMPOWERING students to be masters of their own learning.


1. Yesterday's libraries were all about books. Today's libraries are all about readers.

2. Yesterday's libraries were all about getting information. Today's libraries are all about creating and sharing information.

3. Yesterday's libraries were all about silent individuals. Today's libraries are all about active groups.

4. Yesterday's libraries were all about term papers. Today's libraries are all about multimedia hands-on collaborative projects.


The PCE LMC embraces the concepts of today’s library!
