About the Media Center


  • reading lion Mission Statement:

    The Elizabeth D. Redd Elementary School Media Center provides a welcoming, stimulating, information literacy environment that strives to create lifelong learners who are effective and creative users of information in classrooms and the community as well.

    Vision Statement:

    Educating and introducing users to a wealth of resources in diverse formats to prepare students for lifelong reading.

    Motto:

    Reading is Essential for Lifelong Success

    Elizabeth Redd Library serves all students in Grades K-5. Students come to the library on a  weekly schedule. Classes last for 45 minutes. Please ask your child or your child's teacher what day they come to the library. Since the library serves all students, I try to provide a variety of activities that will provide mental stimulation as well as creative stimulation.  I operate on a modified "makerspace"  theory. Students are encouraged to read, to write, to draw, to create with blocks, to use the computers and especially to check out books. We will be involved in "Hour of Code" for the fourth year and several of our students have really gotten excited about coding!
