Library Operating Information

The library hours are from 8:10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Students are welcome to visit us before school or during their lunch if time permits. Students must have a pass to come to the Media Center. The media center can be reserved for after school use by teachers and, in special circumstances, by parents or community members with prior approval by a school administrator.




Student and Teacher Services

  Our collection offers students and teachers the thrill of checking out newer materials and equipment.  Our collection will continue growing to offer students and teachers books, audiobooks, and movies. We have computers available for students to use independently or with an entire class. Presentation equipment is available for teachers to check out as needed. The library will laminate posters or other items for teachers for free.  The media center also offers a school supply store where students can purchase those items they have lost or forgotten to replace.

    The library promotes and encourages reading through special displays, presentations, contests, and book fairs.  Our next book fair is in October.  Please call 770-651-5815 to volunteer to work at the fair.  

    An equally important component of a successful library media center is offering support to teachers for classroom units.  We will seek to enrich lessons by providing bibliographies for the teachers, book talks, and technology tie-ins.

    We also offer a school store, which is open from 8:10 - 12:30 each day.  Students may come and purchase various school supplies that they may need ranging in prices from $.25 to $3.00.


We welcome all suggestions and questions from students, parents, teachers, and staff.
Come Visit!

Class Reservations

Teachers, Come On Down!

We welcome your classes and promise to help your students with everything they need!  Bring your classes to the media center to check out books, to sit at tables with more space for projects, to use computers, to do fact driven scavenger hunts, or anything else we can provide. 

Teachers can check to see what classes are coming to the media center, as well as reserve a mobile computer lab by checking with the circulation desk. If you find an open hour that will coincide with your lesson plans, email Jennifer Mathews to reserve library time.  Please give details in the email concerning the purpose of the visit and your needs so that we can properly prepare to make your class visit a valuable and successful experience.
