Welcome to the Englewood Library Media Center homepage! Our media center operates daily on a flexible schedule which means students have the opportunity to visit us at any time during any given school day. Our media center has approximately 9,500 books available for our students to check out. Included are a vast range of titles and topics. In addition, students will periodically come to the media center for literacy lessons. We will work a variety of skills which include: research, author/illustrator studies, study of genres, etc.
Our cataloging and collection program, Destiny, is a valuable resource which is used by our faculty and students. This program not only allows students to search our book collection here at school, but also from the comfort of their own homes! Additionally, students may also search for informative, age-appropriate web sites through Destiny. This resource is great to use when conducting research.
Each student is allowed to check out three books at a time. The books will be overdue after two weeks. However, if a student needs additional time to read the book, he/she may recheck the book.
We take great pride in our book collection here at Englewood. It is important to provide the students with a variety of reading materials that will spark their interests. In addition, we ask that each student take care of our books and be careful not to damage or lose books. If this happens, the cost to replace lost or damaged books is $20 for hardbacks and $7.50 for paperbacks. If a student loses or damages a book, a form will be sent home detailing the costs.
Finally, we have two fund-raisers each year, a book fair during the fall semester and another book fair during the spring semester. These are fabulous fund-raisers for our media center. With the book fair profit, we purchase items for our media center such as, books, computers, and lots of other materials. So your support of our book fairs is greatly appreciated. Be looking for some information regarding our fall fair around the end of October.
Please visit us anytime...you are always welcome!
