Library Media Services

MPS student readingThe Division of Library Media Services provides leadership in developing PreK-12 school library media programs to support student achievement.

School library programs ensure that students and teachers have access to media collections that include a variety of print, non-print, reference and electronic resources.

Each MPS school media center tailors its collection to best serve its student body and supports the school curriculum to have a positive effect on student outcomes.

“School Library Impact Studies” show that school libraries have a positive effect on student outcomes, as they teach 21st Century skills, promote active engagement and critical thinking, and develop independent learners.

Additionally, the Division of Library Media Services:

  • Uses technology to effectively and efficiently manage school library collections through the use of a centrally administered Destiny Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC), a Web-based union catalog and inventory system of K-12 library collections in all schools.
  • Supports student research 24/7 through student HOME access to OverDrive eBooks and digital content in the student toolbox. See your school library media specialist for access information.
  • Integrates the Standards for 21st Century Learners (AASL) with K-12 curricula and provides academic coaching  to ensure that all students have the knowledge and preparation for success in the 21st century.
