Media Center Statement

The Madison library media center is dedicated to helping students succeed. The media center's mission is to enrich students' academic experience and personal growth. It is foremost an extension of the classroom where students come to complete research using texts and technology. The expanded fiction collection is a support for pleasure reading and the SSR program at Madison. The district’s online network allows students access to many educational databases such as iconn.

The media center is a resource that supports the curriculum, encourages self-actualization and independent inquiry. As such, it is responsive to students' educational and personal needs that are in constant flux.

The media center remains open after school for teachers to use with their students when necessary and initiates many after school programs.
