Friends of the Media

Friends of the Media is a group of school library advocates. The school library media center can be described as the heart of the school and provides numerous services for our population including students, parents, teachers and staff. The “Friends” help our program reach its full potential and achieve program goals. These advocates are an essential part to our mission statement, and we could not function without them.

Q: Who can be a member of the Friends group?
A: Any student, parent, faculty member or community member (upon volunteer approval).

Adult members will be invited to a Book Bunch Brunch once in December and again in April. Adult members also have access to all special events and book fairs.
