At the Daves Creek Media Center we are proud of our collection of over 25,000 books, far surpassing the American Library Association standard of 10 books per student. We have a state of the art, networked computer system which enables students, staff, and parents access to our library catalog, Destiny, Encarta Encyclopedia, Nettrekker, and other curriculum-based programs.
 
Our media staff provides continuous educational instruction for both students and faculty. Students begin the year with a basic library orientation, followed by training on Destiny and reference materials. Collaboration with the classroom teachers to support instructional needs is ongoing. Our Media Center operates on a flexible schedule which allows students to visit anytime during the day.

Don't forget our wonderful local library online.
