About the Media Center

Collection

The Library Media Center, also known as the Upper Media Center, holds approximately 15,000 titles.  It has a wide range of fiction, non-fiction, and reference materials for student and staff use.  Students also have access to expansive digital library collections. 

    The Library Media Center uses Follett Circulation Plus to manage its collection.  This database includes a browser-based card catalog, which allows students and staff to search the collection both from the classroom and the library.

 

Hours

The library is open during regular school hours from 8 – 3:15.  

 

Mission

The EHMS Library Media Center staff believes that the 21st Century requires citizens to be effective and efficient users of information.  Knowing how to locate, use, and synthesize information in an efficient manner will empower students in school and beyond.  With these goals in mind, the EHMS Library Media Center strives to promote reading for pleasure and for research, to assist students in acquiring information and technology literacy skills, to provide a rich array of print and non-print materials to support the curriculum, and to work with teachers to identify curriculum links and integrate resources into instructional units.
