About the Media Center

  •  Mission
     The mission of the Richmond Community High School Media Center Program is to help students become life long learners and to ensure students and staff are effective users of ideas and information.


    Hours of Operation
    The media center is open from 7:45 - 3:15 Monday - Friday


    Media Center Visits
    I hope visiting the media center becomes an integral part of your high school experience, and you have many opportunities to do so; but please remember:

    • a pass is required to enter the media center during regular classroom hours unless you are visiting with your entire class.
    • a pass is not required during lunch.
    • you must sign in each time you enter, and sign out each time you exit the media center.
    • to follow RPS acceptable use guidelines.

    Media Center Visits--Class Groups
    Faculty members are encouraged to schedule a visit to the Library Media Center in conjunction with a planned lesson or project. I am happy to join in the goal setting for objectives, procedures, activities and resources for the unit. There is a collaboration form to fill out with the Media Specialists to ensure the best use of time and effort.


    VCU High School Partners Program
    This partnership allows students and instructors to borrow materials from VCU libraries. If you are interested, please see Mrs. Humphries for a pass.
