Varnell Elementary Media Center

The mission of the Varnell Media Center is to help students become efficient users of information and to foster a love of reading and literature. The Media Center is open for all students everyday from 7:20am-2:20pm.  In addition to visiting the library with their teachers, students can come to check out books anytime during the day.  Parents are welcome to visit the Media Center and the Title I Parent Resource Center to check-out materials.

Our media specialist, Ms. Vaden collaborates with teachers to teach library and information literacy skills, as well as to promote literature and reading in conjunction with our school curriculum which is based on Georgia State Standards.  Our media clerk, Mrs. Bearden, helps to maintain organization in the media center and to assist students with locating books and online research.
