The Media Center is the "hub" of the school. Not only do our students check out appealing books, they are provided the opportunity to become successful library users whether here at Douglass or at the many public libraries. Also a large part of their experience will be technology, technology, technology!

How to Help
Adopt-A-Book for Douglass
We are inviting you to participate in the Douglass Elementary School Adopt-a-Book program. Through this program, it is possible to place a book in the library in honor or in memory of whomever you wish. This could be in honor of a child, a birthday, a child's teacher, "graduation" from Douglass School, a memorial, etc. Students love to see a book in the library with their name inside. It's also a nice way to remember a teacher at Christmas or during Teacher Appreciation Week.
Please contact Mrs. Harrold for more details and ways that you might Adopt-A-Book for Douglass.
