A media center is much more than just books; a media center is a vital connection between kids, teachers and their curriculum. Several major studies have determined that student test scores can be directly linked to the quality of a school district’s media centers. When visiting the media center, students can perform research through books, magazines, and other computer-assisted devices. They can also find reading materials in the fiction and nonfiction areas for personal or classroom assignments. Students and staff also have access to other technology, including audio books, e-books, digital and video cameras, and much more.
