Welcome to the Media Center!About the Daves Creek Media Program
The vision of the Daves Creek Elementary library media program is to develop successful, independent users of information and lifelong learners.The DCE library media program supports the classroom curriculum, integrates information literacy skills, promotes literature appreciation, and serves specific needs of students and teachers.
The Lexile “Find a Book” website can help identify books that students are interested in and are able to read. This tool can be found at www.Lexile.com/fab/GA.
You may also find this information posted on www.georgiastandards.org. Additionally,information about Lexiles on student test reports and how to use this information can be found at www.gadoe.org/lexile.aspx.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 system which enables students, staff, and parents access to our library catalog, Destiny, PebbleGo, GALILEO, 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.Talking with your kids on a regular basis about what they are reading can positively affect their performance at school and create important family bonds. We invite you and your child to look at our school media center catalog together to discuss options or create a list of books to check out.
Forsyth County Schools’ media centers provide resources that reflect all students within each school community. If you come across a book that does not match your family’s values and/or beliefs, and you would prefer that your child does not check that book out, please discuss it with your child.
We are always happy to help you and your child to find just the right book. This is a partnership, and we are excited to work with you!
