Cherrydale’s library media center (LMC) operates on a fixed / flexible schedule. This allows all our students, staff and parents access to our LMC resources and media specialist throughout the school day. Second thru fifth grade students, either individually or in small groups, may come daily to check out books or do research turning every school day into their “library day.” Kindergarten and 1st grade classes have fixed library times during the first semester. This allows our younger students time to become familiar with the media center personal and procedures and develop an appreciation for books before coming to the media center individually or in small groups during the second semester. Classes for all grades are scheduled into the library media center when use of the LMC resources fits into the teachers’ lessons and may be scheduled for more that one day at a time.
Parents, students, and teachers can now browse our school library media center card catalog anytime, anywhere over the Internet with Destiny, our new library catalog system on line. Perform powerful searches by title, author, subject, keyword, call number, or series. Access has never been easier!
