Welcome to the Media Center at Brinson Memorial!


Support the continuous improvement of Brinson Memorial in its ongoing efforts to develop lifelong, independent, and socially responsible learners.

  • Welcome to the Media Center! This is a place of learning for our staff, students and community. We provide access to a wide variety of reading materials by developing and implementing an ongoing collection development and evaluation planning process. In collaboration with teachers, students, administrators, and community members, we evaluate and select resources that build a collection addressing curricular needs and meet diverse learning styles. Our goal is to develop lifelong learners with a love for reading.
    In the library, we use a variety of comprehension strategies to facilitate student learning and understanding. Students participate in read-alouds, storytelling activities, book-talking, silent and voluntary independent reading experiences, and conduct research.

    We encourage the use of print and electronic resources and services to meet the various needs we face daily. The media center provides leadership in the school's use of instructional technology equipment and resources to enhance student learning experiences.
