Meade Middle School Library Media Center
Media Center’s Mission Statement
Meade Middle School's media center is a learning-centered facility, where teachers are collaborating with the librarian to create engaging learning opportunities, and students are actively finding and using information. Students learn to think, to understand major concepts in what they study, to solve problems, to communicate effectively, and to learn how to learn. The media center will be a safe haven for students to experience learning with others, to exchange ideas, to pursue interesting questions, and to discover a world of opportunity and challenge outside the walls of the school. You might even have a chance to view 3D science simulations while here.

Library Media Vision & Mission
The Office of Library Media Services envisions school libraries that are the hub of the school and are innovative, vibrant, and flexible spaces, staffed with school librarians who inspire students to become tech savvy and independent life-long readers and learners.
The mission of the Office of Library Media Services is to develop students who are lifelong readers and effective users of technology and information. We do this by teaching critical thinking, research skills and ensuring access to information resources and literature. The curriculum is designed to teach library media skills and information literacy at appropriate levels. In collaboration with the teachers, the library media specialist has developed an instructional program based on curriculum and the needs of the student population.
Over 1.6 million items are checked out each year to students and faculty.
