Welcome to CHES Library Media Center

The mission of the library media program is to provide information, through a variety of formats, to students and teachers in a way that challenges the mind to new thoughts and ideas. The library media program also encourages and promotes literacy, a love of reading, a love of learning, and ensures that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information.

The media center serves students, faculty, and parents. Students visit the media center on a weekly basis for library lessons and to check-out books.



In order to encourage and promote reading, we are asking all students in 3rd through 5th grade to check out one chapter book per week.



Each year the media center holds 2 Scholastic Book Fairs, one in the Fall and one in the Spring. Many different types of materials from books to posters are available for purchase. Parents can also purchase books from teachers' wish lists to be added to their child's classroom library. The school receives a percentage in new books for the library from the fair.

Mark your calendars for - Scholastic Book Fairs

Don't miss the family events!
