Library Collaborations and Activities

What is the purpose of the Media Center? Promoting reading is an extremely important goal - we all know reading enhances student success. Creating positive reading experiences is always a priority of the library, but what else could the library do for students? So far this semester, classes from different departments have visited the Media Center to learn research methods, explore different types of media, and create unique learning products. Students have visited the library for a variety of reasons, inside and outside of class, and they are quickly discovering the library's valuable role in their learning.

The Wilkes Central High School library's mission aligns with our school's mission: Through promoting reading, inquiry-based learning, and 21st century skills, the WCHS Media Center will supplement a rigorous educational experience that leads to student success. If you are interested in learning more about what the library can do for students, faculty, and the community, feel welcome to drop by anytime to check out library goings-on and chat with Mrs. Snow.
