Fair Street's media center provides a range of learning opportunities for both large and small groups and for individuals. The focus is on improving the learning process, with emphasis on intellectual content, inquiry, and the learner. Learners are encouraged to read, view, listen, construct, and create in order to learn in their own way. The Media Center program is a cooperative venture in which the media specialist, teachers, and administrators work together to provide opportunities for the social, cultural, and educational growth of all students.
Reading Promotions: The media center promotes literacy through various genre and book promotions.
The Media Center promotes Read Across America in March in honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday. NEA sponsors this in hopes that every child in America will read a book on that day.
Information Literacy: The media center follows state and national guidelines in designing and implementing a program that teaches information literacy while supporting the state-mandated standards.
Check Out Guidelines:
Kindergarten students may check out one book starting in January.
First, Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth Grade students may check out two books.
All books are due back to the media center within two weeks. Students may have out a total of two books and cannot check out books until an overdue book is returned or paid for if lost. We also accept replacement books in Hardback version.
