Library Media Center

Library Media Center

Queen of the Rosary is proud of our Library Media Center (LMC) which has combined the existing library and the old computer lab. Our LMC  serves students from all grades and provides opportunities for them to check out books, do research, participate in STEM and center activities. Digital Citizenship is taught in the classrooms and reinforced in the LMC through Commonsense Media lessons.

The LMC has a combination of desktops, laptops, Chromebooks and iPads for teaching and learning. Our flexible seating allows for whole group, small group and choice in seating. Our new tables are on wheels and flip for storage so we will have more floor space. The interactive whiteboard allows both teachers and students to project lessons.

Many older books have been weeded from the library to make room for new books that have been purchased from our Scholastic Book Fair funds and donations. Our collection includes Fiction, Non-Fiction, Biography, Religion, Poetry, Picture Books, Reference Books and Graphic Novels. Students have access to E-books and databases through online subscriptions.

Our student Library Crew has been instrumental in providing feedback regarding the LMC, processing new books, straightening and labeling shelves and giving suggestions for activities and new books.
