    ​​Media Mission: Our mission is to inspire students to be the best they can be through experiencing the joy of reading for pleasure and the confidence in reading for facts and information.  Successful learning begins with reading, and we promote all readers to be leaders!
    Media Center Hours: Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. for students.

    Students are welcome at all times throughout the day, whether in small groups, sent by the teacher, or as a whole class.  Students K-2 may check out 1 book at a time and students 3-5 may check out 2 books.
    Students are allowed to keep their books for two weeks.  If a student needs to extend that time he/she may bring the book in and renew it for two more weeks.  When the student's book becomes overdue, the computer will block the student from checking out anymore books until the overdue book is returned or financially replaced.  When a book is 30 days overdue it is considered lost and must be replaced.   Students are responsible for the books they check out.  Overdue fines are not charged.

    The Media Center will host two Scholastic Book Fairs every year.  The first Book Fair will be during the week of Open House in September and the second Fair will be at the end of May.  The Book Fair is a great way to promote independent reading and to help our Media Center improve its book collection for students.

    Students can also access our ebook collection through the Folletshelf link on our catalog page.  Use the media catalog link above.

    Reading Counts Program

    Timbercrest Media supports the Reading Counts Program.  This is a motivational reading program that offers students the opportunity to take quizzes after reading books.  The quizzes consist of 10 questions that enhance students' comprehension and reading skills.
    As students take and pass the quizzes they accumulate points.  There are goals we have set in the media center for students to achieve and when they do they receive award certificates and free books.  Students may also appear on our daily news show to be acknowledged for their accomplishment.
    This program is optional and should not be used for grades in the classroom.

    Sunshine State Readers Award Program

    15 books are chosen each year to support this motivational independent reading program for students grades 3-5.  The media center offers awards and prizes for students who read the books and pass RC quizzes.  Students can also recieve charms for a charm bracelet that correlate with each book and its' theme.  At the end of the school year the Media Center has a "Sunshine State Reader" party for students who participated.
