Media Center

Welcome to the East Side High School Media Center. The mission of the school library media center is to prepare students to become effective users of resources, ideas, and provide information for access to materials in all formats.

The ESHS media center is a well designed and well equipped library that provides students with both print and non-print collections. The goal is to insure that students master the critical skills for information literacy.

In the position of ESHS Media Specialist I have worked diligently to provide students with an environment that is friendly, and fosters confidence to all who utilize the media center.

Students who utilize this academic space will be well prepared in acquiring materials and resources to meet their current and lifelong needs.

Remember: “Readers become Leaders!”
