The mission of Indian River Middle School media center is to offer a variety of print and non-print resources for faculty and students to meet SOL objectives and personal interests. The library staff provides staff and students with guidance and instruction in the use of media center resources. Our goal is to enable students to effectively access information and to promote life-long learning.
- Students may check out two books for a period of two weeks. Books may be renewed.
- There are no fines for overdue books. However, we strongly encourage our patrons to return their books in a timely manner.
- Students who fail to return a book may not check out another book until the original book is paid for or returned.
Enjoy your food and reading in the media center during lunch period.
Virginia Readers Choice 2016-2017
The Virginia Readers’ Choice program is sponsored by the Virginia State Reading Association. The purpose of this program is to introduce students to noteworthy books that have been published within the last three years. Students who read four or more of the titles below and pass the accompanying tests by March 30, 2017, will be invited to a pizza and ice cream party in the media center. During the party, students will discuss the books and vote on their favorite book. Votes will be tallied and sent to the state. The winning book will be announced later in the spring.
