CvMS Media Center Highlights

ALL IS COME, ALL IS BRIGHT: NEW SELF CHECK-IN STATION

During December, the media coordinators introduced 40 Language Arts classes to CvMS media center's new self check-in station. Students learned how to locate the correct barcode on the back of their books, scan them, read the screen for additional information, and shelve the books in either the fiction or nonfiction section on a specific cart. Students seem excited about this new procedure and are doing a great job! We believe allowing students to check-in their own materials will foster responsibility, help them to learn more about the Destiny catalog, and also help them differentiate between nonfiction and fiction books (student below is checking in his own book at our new self check-in station). This process allows the media coordinators to use their time to aid students and staff in locating materials. It also gets the books on the shelves in a more timely manner.


TIS THE SEASON FOR READING STATISTICS...

*There were 15 school days in December.
