Tuckers Crossroads Library Media Center
Amanda Wakefield Owen, Library Media Specialist

Our goal is foster and promote a love for reading while teaching students information skills appropriate to their grade level and correlating to the state standards relating to the library/media center.
The Tuckers Crossroads Library Media Center serves kindergarten through eighth grade. Our library program is a fundamental part of the school curriculum. Students in grades K-4 attend one forty-five minute library class each week. During class, students participate in story time, literature activities, and lessons that teach library skills, media and research.
Kindergarten students become accustomed to the library's layout and procedures as they experience both the excitement and responsibility associated with choosing, borrowing, and returning their own library books. Students in first and second grades learn to use the library's computerized search program, Destiny to locate books that interest them and provide for their own reading enjoyment and/or support classroom or library lessons. Third and fourth grade students gain clearer insight into research skills and gain further exposure on each genre of literature. Each year, students build on the previous year's knowledge to become effective users of information and technology (A.K.A a LIBRARY SUCCESS STORY!).

Dear Partner(s) in Education,
Not all books in our library collection are suitable for all students. It is important to communicate with your child what is and is not acceptable in regards to the content of a book.
