National Library Week April 8-14, 2018April is School Library Month, and April 8 through 14, 2018, is National Library Week. It is a time when libraries around the county, state, and nation celebrate all that the library is and represents.

Libraries and school media centers provide free and equal access to information and technology so that all learners can succeed regardless of varying background, ability, or socio-economic status. Researchers, including Stephen Krashen, Keith Curry Lance, and more, have proven repeatedly that reading and school libraries are critical to student growth and achievement. In fact, student achievement, including test scores, is empirically proven time and again to go up when a full-time qualified school media coordinator is on staff and when school districts invest in their media center’s collection. Literacy is the key to unlock all other learning. The more you read, the better you read, the more you understand, and the easier all other subjects become.

Libraries in general, and school media centers specifically, are no longer just a place to find books. They are vibrant learning centers where students of all ages are drawn for inquiry, critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity, and growth. CCS’ media centers include makerspaces and computer labs or carts and accommodate individual, small group, and whole class learning. Gone are the silent libraries from the days of old. Visit a CCS media center, and you will hear the vibrant sound of students growing.

In Cumberland County, circulation statistics prove that students, parents, teachers, and other staff know the value of a strong media center and how literacy is the core of all learning. According to Destiny, the CCS online catalog, over 104,400 books this month and over 2,705,000 books this school year have been circulated to our patrons.

The motto of Cumberland County Schools’ IT & Media Services Department is “CCS’ Media Centers are the Heart of the School.” They are the core from which all school resources and student engagement flows. The 82 full-time media coordinators dedicated to CCS’ students work tirelessly to make this true so be good to YOUR heart of the school. Visit and support your school’s media center today!
