Love 2 Read

Welcome to Your Media Center

The primary goal of the H.A.S. Media Center is to implement, enrich, and support the educational program of our school. Our mission is to ensure that students and staff are effective and lifelong users of ideas and information. We strive to foster the love of reading and learning as a lifelong process through a safe, engaging, and caring environment as we prepare successful and innovative 21st Century learners. 

Hours of Operation

Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Flexible and Open Access Schedule

Special Note from Your Media Specialist: 

I am thrilled to serve as H.A.S. library media specialist! I look forward to helping every learner become a critical thinker, enthusiastic reader, skillful researcher, and ethical user of information! Most of all, I want to help every learner to become a life-long learner who strives for success. 

The library media center operates on a flexible/Open Access schedule. Every class (K-5) is scheduled to come in at least 30 minutes each week. A lesson is presented and browsing time is available for students to check out books. Grades K -1 are not allowed to check out books but their teachers will have a classroom set of books for them on a weekly basis. Grades 2-3 may check out up to two books each week. Grades 4-5 may check out up to three books each week. Books for Grades 2-5 may go home according to the classroom teacher’s policy. The Open Access/Flexible schedule allows students to visit the library media center any time outside of their classes to exchange books, take the Accelerated Reader test, take Compass, or to complete research projects.

Please encourage your child to enjoy and take care of our library materials and return them for more on or before their due dates. Also, please enjoy reading WITH your child whenever possible. For more information or if you need assistance, please email me at stephanie.smith@mps.k12.al.us, or call me at 334-269-3690. 

Happy Reading!

Stephanie Smith
