    Dear Freetown Families,

    We were excited to see students from each grade level participate in our May Reading Challenge.  To help continue our student’s love for reading, we are encouraging students and their families to participate in our March Reading Challenge.  The reading challenge has a variety of online and offline reading activities to choose from.  Adults should initial under each activity that the students complete.  After 10 or more activities are completed, students should submit their reading challenges to their Media Google Classrooms.  Students who complete the reading challenge will be entered into a drawing for a free book from Scholastic at the end of the month.  If you have any questions about the reading challenge, please contact Ms. Chilton at or (301) 684-8473.  Thank you and Happy Reading!

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.
