FLHS Library Media Program
†Hours of Operation
The media center is open every period this year and after-school (7:45a - 3:15p). Staff are welcome to use the space at all times. If there is no teacher on-duty, please make sure there are no students present (including volunteers) and make sure the door is locked upon departure.
Study Hall Duty Teachers
Please only allow 3 students from your study hall to visit the media center at a time and make sure each of them has a signed planner.
Cafeteria Duty Teachers
Students are permitted to visit the media center at lunch as long as each one has a signed planner. As of now, there is no limit but if it becomes too crowded we will limit the amount of students.
We have access to various online resources such as turnitin and LibGuides as well as many research databases including EBSCO, Facts on File, SIRS, VRL, and World Book. These can be accessed freely within the building but if you or your students need remote access I can provide you with a password sheet. If you would like assistance with these products or to schedule an instructional session for a research paper/project, let me know. Destiny is our online catalog for books.
After an arduous but necessary weeding project, we still have many print books to support your curriculum or for pleasure reading. If you have any titles or series you would like to see added to the collection, email me. Additionally, there are a plethora of magazines and periodicals available for use in the media center with past copies (<6 issues old) available for use in the classroom.
TechnologyThere is one Mac and 15 HP desktop computers connected to two network printers (black-and-white and color) available for use. Other items include a scanner and cold laminator. Also, we have several document cameras and Smart Response clickers that can be loaned-out.
There is a mounted projector with a 10' x 6' screen now installed in the East Wing, which is the instructional area. Please contact me if you would like to book the use of this area for a class or club activity, it is an ideal space for research instruction, a film screening, or guest speaker.
We are still awaiting a delivery of new furniture but there are plans to create a lounge area in the West Wing with comfy chairs and coffee tables. Feel free to use this area, it is not just for students.
