Welcome to the Preston Elementary School Media Center!

Through our own collection and our partnership with Caroline County Public Library, we are able to provide students with extensive resources to support their education.

In addition, numerous databases and resources are available for use by all students. Check out some of the helpful links below. If you need username and password information, please contact your Media Specialist, Mrs. Blackmon.

Media Center Policies

Please visit the Caroline County Public Schools Website for policies relating to the school library. These policies include unmet obligations, reconsideration of materials, and selection of materials.

 

All students come to the Media Center once a week for book checkout and Media class. Grades K – 2 check out one book at a time. Students in grades 3-5 are able to checkout two books per week. The books are due back on Media day and can be renewed multiple times. We have a wide selection of reading materials including Graphic Novels, Fiction, Non-Fiction, Biography, and Reference. Each child also has access to a full suite of Google Apps for Education and a MacBook Air Laptop.

 

The Media Center has an extensive MakerSpace area that includes Sphero robots, three Cricut cutting machines, Bloxels, Snap Circuits, Legos, Art Supplies, electric piano, drums, many building materials including KNex, IO blocks, and the student’s favorite, the Giant Polydron Blocks. We also have a MakerSpace Club that meets 10 times over the course of the year where students can work together and be a Maker!
