Mrs. Karin Woodruff is the Library Media Specialist at L.E.S. The Media Center is also staffed with a full-time Media Assistant, Mrs. Susan Turner. The L.E.S. Media Center is open from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Monday - Friday, during the school year.
The L.E.S. Media Center operates on flexible scheduling. Flexible scheduling allows the use of the Media Center at the point of need by individuals, groups, and / or classes. Individuals and small groups may use the Media Center as often as necessary for research, checkout, and reading.
During the 2012-2013 school year, each class will have a scheduled time to come to the library each week. We will use this time for students and teachers to choose "just right" books, to conference about their reading and to read for enjoyment, as well as for lessons on specific library media skills.
