Welcome to the Auburn Elementary Media Center.
Students may check out books any time between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. while school is in session. Students may check out 2 books at a time unless teachers have requested other arrangements.
There are no due dates for our books. We ask that students return the books as soon as they finish reading them. If they finish one of their books and would like to check out a new book, they must bring both books back to the media center. We will renew the one book and allow them to get another new book.
Every week a new picture storybook or chapter book is read to the classes that come to the media center.
Classes come to the media center throughout the week to hear a story, check out books, do research, receive instruction in library skills, healthy foods and 21 Century technology skills.
Parents: You may come to the media center to check out books to read to your children at home. You may check out up to 4 books under your name at a time. Your children will be responsible for returning your books to the media center.
There are no fines for overdue books, but if a child loses or damages a library book their report card will be held until charges are paid.
Destiny can be used to search for books in the AES Media Center, make a book suggestion, access MyOn, and access Kids Galileo Search. Please use the following link to access Destiny: https://destiny.barrow.k12.ga.us/
All you need is your public library card to access eRead Kids, which provides free access to nearly 15,000 digital books to encourage early literacy. Georgia Public Library Service (GPLS) is proud to launch eRead Kids, a new digital library available through all 407 public libraries in the state. The collection of almost 15,000 electronic and audio books is for children from pre-k through fourth grade.
“Kids will build confidence and reading skills - and have fun - through eRead Kids,” said State Librarian Julie Walker. “eRead Kids will empower libraries to support young readers by offering a format convenient for traveling and entertaining kids, while growing their reading skills.” The collection is a mix of fiction and non-fiction ebook and audio book titles that can be downloaded onto computers, tablets and smartphones. All Georgia families now can freely check out electronic books for their devices, encouraging the early reading that is so important to educational success.
To access eRead Kids, you simply need your Georgia public library card and an internet connection. Visit georgialibraries.org/eReadKids or your local library to learn more. We encourage all LEAs to share this resource with their students, teachers, and families.
