About the Media Center

  • Welcome to the Southampton Elementary School Library page! 

    The Library Media Center is dedicated to build teaching partnerships that is framed by three guiding principles: We focus on the learning environment, accessibility, and high-quality leadership.

    Learning Environment: We facilitate a learning environment that demonstrates interconnectivity, advances its participatory knowledge and culture, that results in an effective collaborative experience.

    Accessible Spaces: We design, provide, and implement learning practices and spaces that offers maximum access points and ensures the center fosters a flexible and adaptable learning environment that supports lessons, school collaboration, and instruction. We promote reading books and encourage students about the use of the internet-based catalog of print and digital resources.

    High quality leadership: We cultivate flexible planning and implement learning activities that includes evaluating instruction through on-going assessment, planning and reflection.  Our Library Media Center demonstrates a working knowledge of curriculum content and creates opportunities to enhance instructional practices and professional growth.
