Reading takes us away from home, but more important, it finds homes for us everywhere. ~ Hazel Rochman
The mission of the Sharon Elementary Media Center is to provide a comprehensive program that incorporates the curriculum, a well-developed collection, and current technology while maintaining a focus on literacy. This program strives to enable students to be effective users of information and ideas while developing a love of diverse reading and lifelong learning.
Book Returns and Renewals
All student library books must be brought to the Media Center by their media day, whether for return or renewal. Students can log onto their Destiny accounts to be reminded of what they may have checked out and due dates. Renewals are to be brought in with students during Media time or Independent Checkout.
Lost or Damaged Books
Periodically, notices will be sent home for overdue or damaged books. Remember, students can always log onto Destiny for an update of their account. Your assistance in the development of responsible students helps to support our Sharon School Guidelines.
Independent checkout is available during school hours. At the beginning of the year, 2nd - 5th grade students will learn independent checkout procedures. Encourage your students to take advantage of this time! Together, let's help our students maintain their enthusiasm for reading- both pleasure and informational.
Media Volunteers (Merry Media Mavens)
"Many hands make light work." The Merry Media Mavens know that truer words were never spoken! The efforts of these fine folks are what keep Sharon's Media Center the tidy place that it is. In order to maintain the status quo, they offer their time to shelve books, straighten up, create displays, process new materials, etc. If you are interested in joining the fun, please contact Camilla Mazzotta.
