Media Center

The purpose of the Media Center at Richmond Middle School is to support the philosophy of the school, sharing and implementing its goals 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 instruction and recreational reading needs. The library media specialist provides library skill instruction. Students learn to locate and properly use library materials, conduct research for their various classes and generally is the hub of the school.
