Goals of the library media program:

  • cultivate a love of reading,

  • teach students to become effective and ethical users of print and electronic information,

  • and to encourage all students to become lifelong learners.

Media Center Happenings

Friends of the Clay Media Center and Library Club

Hello my fellow book lovers!

I hope you're doing well and are finding some joy in being stuck at home. Perhaps you're catching up on some reading?! :) 

I wanted you to know that I am adding eBooks, book talks and other resources to the library canvas page so feel free to check those out. I will keep adding over the next few weeks!

Remember you can always leave book reviews in the library catalog just by logging in with your normal CCS login. 

What I really wanted to ask you for though are some book talks of books you've read recently or that you just love! Film yourself for 1-2 minutes talking about the book you love, a quick summary and recommendations for why others should read it too. I'd like to add those to the library page!

Share the videos with me through Google Docs or email sswartz1@ccs.k12.in.us 

Feel free to ask your friends to make book talk videos too!!!

THANK YOU and STAY WELL!!!
