It's only a room with shelves and books,
but it's far more magical than it looks
It's a jet on which I soar
to lands that exist no more.

Or a key with which I find
answers to questions crowding my mind.

Building my habit of learning and growing,
asking and researching till I reach knowing.

Here, I've been a mermaid and an elf
I've even learned to be more myself.

I think that I shall never see
a place that's been more useful to me.

With encouraging kind friends with wit
Who tell me to dream big and never quit.

It's only a room with shelves and books,
but it's far more magical than it looks.


Scott Avenue Middle School Library Media Center

It is a recognized fact that the Library Media Center is a vital facility in every school. The effectiveness of this facility is directly related to the manner in which it is used. Therefore, the students and staff of Scott should become acquainted with the accumulating store of knowledge and information. A variety of orientations for all grade levels start in September.

The Scott Middle School Library has a wealth of information in both print and non-print medias, contained within the curriculum and beyond. The Librarian is present to assist all students and staff in their queries.

The Scott Middle School Library Media Center strives to:

  • Allow students to become effective users of information.
  • Encourage reading for enjoyment.
  • Encourage students toward independent research.
  • Provide training in the skills that will permit each student to gain access to that knowledge and information.
  • And provide resources that will help foster lifelong learning.
