Media Center

Carson’s Media Center is a brightly stimulating splash of color in the center of our school. Student work is often displayed and flags from our students’ countries of origin create a favorite spot for the entire community.

Carson has a part-time Library Media Assistant, Gaetane Thibaudeau, and parent volunteers who welcome our students, staff and families daily. Classes are scheduled in the Media Center on a weekly basis. Materials in the library are chosen for their quality, their ability to reflect the cultural diversity of our community, and to support various reading readiness levels.

We are a community of readers with a circulation of over 600 books per week. Our current collection of books and videos totals over 11,000 volumes and new books are purchased every year. All materials are accessed through 4 iMac browsers using the Destiny computerized checkout and cataloging system. The reading levels of books that are part of Accelerated Reader can be identified through Destiny and students check out AR books on a regular basis.
