Media Center Policies
"A house without books is like a room without windows. No man has a right to bring up children without surrounding them with books.... Children learn to read being in the presence of books."
A fulltime media specialist plans and executes the library media program with the assistance of a fulltime library assistant. The goal of the library staff is to provide a high level of service to students, and teachers in accordance with professional school library and South Carolina state standards.
The North Augusta Elementary School library media center program promotes and teaches information literacy skills that encompass the ability to find, use, and evaluate ideas and information, leading to productive life-long learning.
The mission of the North Augusta Elementary School Library Media Center is to support the research, informational, reading, viewing, and instructional needs of the staff and students and to support the South Carolina Curriculum Standards. A professional librarian is committed to providing instruction and working collaboratively with other educators to design learning strategies and opportunities to meet the needs of individual students and the school community. A graduate professional librarian and a trained library assistant manage the selection, purchase, acquisition, classification, organization, retrieval, and interpretation of information. The staff acquires a variety of information formats such as but not limited to books, magazines, tapes, electronic hardware and software, maps, pamphlets, and videos. In order to address the educational and recreational information needs of the school community, the library acquires materials on a variety of topics and points of view. The media center staff strives to provide resources and opportunities for all students to attain literacy, locate and evaluate information both electronically and in print, develop critical thinking skills, acquire knowledge, and enjoy the learning necessary to meet the challenges of today’s world.
