The Glen Arden
Library/Media Center maintains a wide variety of books, eBooks and other
resources as well as teacher and librarian-approved weblinks on our Destiny homepage.
Materials are selected that kindle growth in factual knowledge, literature
appreciation, ethical standards, and multi-cultural awareness. From
information technology classes, to encouraging a love of books and reading, the
Library/Media Center offers a variety of information to enable ALL
students to become lifelong and curious learners.
Media classes, which
implement puppets and include storytimes and computer skills, are held on a
regular/fixed schedule for K-4. Library lessons support Information
Skills strategies developed by the NC Department of Public Instruction.
A computer learning station is available for student and teacher use, as
needed. Students in all grades have open check-out access to the library each
morning. Students in upper grades (3-4) access the library throughout
each school day with their self-check library cards .
coordinates two Scholastic Book Fairs each year. Book fair proceeds go
directly toward purchasing books and materials for the Media Center, as this is
the only source of funding for the library. Very Important Library Assistants
(VILA Club) are 4th graders who help shelve books and take care of the library.
