About The Library
The library serves approximately 600 students in grades 6-8 with a collection of more than 9,000 books, Ebooks, videos, CDs, magazines, and playaways accessed through our Destiny Catalog and many online databases available through DISCUS. We strive to be the reading, research, and recreational hub of the school. With the help of teachers and students, we are constantly updating our resources to reflect the academic and recreational needs of our school community. Extracurricular book clubs and Broadcast classes are sponsored by the media center to offer additional opportunities for student involvement.
To serve our students and staff, our facility is open daily from 7:20 am to 3:00 pm. Students may come to the library before school and during the school day with a pass or with a class. Students visit with their ELA classes once a month. A limited number of library passes are available from a Carver staff member supervising each lunch period.
Students may check out three books and magazines for up to one month. Books may also be renewed. We also have an ebook and audiobook collection available for student use. Although students are not charged for overdue books, they are responsible to pay for books that are not returned.
We envision the Carver Media Center as the middle school information hub inspiring the Carver family with a passion for lifelong learning. We strive to provide all students and staff at Carver Middle School with the skills to access, critique, and use information independently to support, enrich, and supplement classroom instruction; stimulate intellectual curiosity and creativity; support the acquisition of knowledge and understanding of the world; develop critical judgment and aesthetic appreciation; and celebrate reading.
