Media Center

libraryThe school library program serves to instill a love of reading, inspire life-long learning, and foster independent library use. Students visit once a week with their class to check out materials and to practice information literacy skills and digital citizenship. The library is an inviting space where students may acquire knowledge and gain insight; a welcoming haven where children may seek respite from a demanding day; a stimulating place where they may open books and open their minds for a better tomorrow. 

The Library serves about 600 students in grades Pre-K through 5. Holdings include books, magazines, art prints, videos, DVDs, and audiobooks --roughly 20,000 items. There are four student-use computer stations, three computers serving library operations, and one presentation station that boasts both a wide-screen television and an interactive SMART Board. First automated in 2000, library services have migrated to Follett Destiny Discover, a web-based system. The interface enables our students, staff, and parents to have access to a unified catalog of all holdings, and it promotes the library to the classroom to home learning and connectivity.  Students may log in using their student identification number as their username and "ccps1234" as their password.

Book check out is as follows:
Pre K - K: 1 book limit
Grades 1 - 5: 2 book limit

  • Books are checked out for one week, but students may return books before the deadline if they choose. Overdue notices are sent out periodically, as a reminder, but no overdue fines are charged.
  • The EES Media Center operates on an open flexible schedule with teachers scheduling instructional classes as needed. Students are allowed to come to the Media Center anytime with teacher permission.
  • Parent Volunteers are welcome and needed. Please contact Ms. Jones if you are interested in giving your time.

Supporting literacy is still a focal point of the library. School Librarians motivate kids to read by providing a space for kids to explore their own interests and choose their own reading materials. Stop by and see what's going on at the Edmonds Elementary Library!
