Library Book Fair



Library Media Center


Welcome to Santiago Charter Middle School Library Media Center. Our mission is to promote information literacy for 21st learning by integrating education and technology. This section was created to provide students with a safe portal to the Internet and its resources. The resources give 24/7 access to instructional tools for a variety of educational endeavors, and also make learning fun by providing access to joining a club, checking out a library activity, or contributing to a review. These resources were found for the students by the Library Staff, teachers and students in an effort of collaboration and team work to supply students with the most user friendly tools. To make a suggestion, e-mail the SCMS Librarian.

Hours: Monday through Friday at 7:00 A.M. except Late Start Wednesdays, when we open at 8:30 A.M. We're also open at nutrition, lunch and after school until 4:30 P.M. Monday-Thursday, and until 4:00P.M. Friday.
