Library Media Center

The library media program supports and enriches the teaching and learning process, provides intellectual and physical access to all avenues and formats of information, and promotes within the Mason Prep community and beyond the joy of lifelong reading and inquiry.

For kindergarten through fifth grades, each homeroom visits the Media Center once per week to learn media literacy skills. The upper school students, faculty, and others enjoy open scheduling beginning at 7:30 a.m. to come to the library media center for individual checkouts, Accelerated Reader program quizzes and research.

The media center houses a collection of over 8,000 books as well as a variety of databases, DVDs, periodicals, and non-printed resources. Students and faculty can access the library catalog from anywhere in the school for research. Other activities such as the in-school television program (KNI-TV), chess club, authors' visits, and the Accelerated Reader Program are sponsored by the media center.
