The media center is an integral part of W. H. Taylor Elementary School. We strive to be a resource for students, parents, teachers, and staff. We encourage students to develop a love of reading, assist them in becoming critical thinkers, and guide them as they learn to use the technological resources that help them succeed in school and later in life. Our library is a place where teachers can find someone with whom they can collaborate as they plan meaningful, innovative lessons for their students. We work in tandem with parents as they seek to inspire, enrich, and provide remediation for all students through various programs. If you need help, feel free to contact our expert staff.
