Avalon Middle School's Media Center is the hub of the school where students learn to research, to create in Makerspaces, and to develop a love of reading.
The Media Center is open in the mornings before school every morning except Tuesdays from 8:35 - 9:05 a.m. During this time, students are able to read, check out books, or participate in Makerspace activities.
Additionally, ELA classes visit the Media Center every other week for the opportunity to check out books.
Library Media Center Access Levels
Santa Rosa County District Schools has implemented a new process that allows parents to choose their student’s level of access to school media center collections each year:
Unlimited My student may have full access to check out grade and age-appropriate books that are available at their grade level (elementary, middle, high) school library to include same grade level inter library loan as well as classroom libraries.
Limited My student may check out books from the library media center, but there is content that that I would like my student to not have access to in the library media center including the classroom library.
No Access My student is not permitted to check books out of the library media center or use classroom library books.
To make a selection other than Unlimited, please make the selection here. If you choose Unlimited, you do not need to complete the form.
