Media Center Information

     The purpose of the Media Center at Sunrise Elementary is to support the philosophy of the school, sharing and implementing its aims and objectives. It is the responsibility of the librarian / media specialist to make available to students and teachers a wide variety of information, both print and non-print, to meet instructional and recreational needs. The library media specialist provides library skill instruction for each class on a rotating basis. Students learn to locate and properly use library materials.
