• The mission of the Robert J. Burch Elementary School Media Center is to nurture students’ love of reading, spark students’ curiosity, and develop life-long learners who effectively use and evaluate information. In addition, the media center supports the instructional curriculum and teacher instruction.

    The media center is open throughout the school day and operates on a flexible, open schedule, which means throughout the school day students can check out books on an as-needed basis. Teachers can schedule their students for library skill instruction, research, and book checkout. We want our media center instruction to connect to classroom activities and be an extension of the classroom.
