    Where Ospreys Read and Learn in the Nest!

    Welcome to the Osprey Library Media Center where information is available in a wide variety of formats, both print and electronic; where materials and activities are coordinated with classroom assignments; and where students learn information skills that prepare them to live and work in the 21st century. Today's school library media program plays an integral role in educating children for the future. It is where students learn to find, analyze, evaluate, interpret, and communicate information and ideas — skills they will need as adults to live and work in an information-based society. So much is going on in the media center...from checking out just right books to engaging in STEM projects and activities. The media center offers engaging opportunities for all! Make sure to come in and check us out!
