Library Media Center

  • Where reading, research, and technology merge for lifelong learning. 

     

    Welcome!

    Our North Wake Library Media Center is a place for:

    • CONNECTIONS. All are welcome.
    • TECHNOLOGY. Library Media Specialist, Mrs. Hitchings, is a resource for tech questions. Laptops and a printer are available to students to use in the Library Media Center.
    • RESEARCH. Resources for classes and individual students to explore topics, careers, and college skills. Gain knowledge needed to critically examine information sources.  Can’t find what you need? Ask Mrs. Hitchings!
    • READING. Extensive collection of graphic novels, fiction, and nonfiction. Need suggestions? Ask Mrs. Hitchings!  Reading regularly helps every person continuously improve their literacy skills! Studies have shown that this results in higher scores on tests such as the ACT and SAT.
    • COLLABORATION. Space to work together.
    • COMMUNICATION. Small groups can gather.  Presentation space for large groups.
    • CREATIVITY. Students create displays, project work, or brainstorm ideas.
    • STUDY. Designated as the school’s quiet study area during Griffin’s Den and lunches.
