The Hub of School Life
The Jackson-Olin Library Media Center re-afirms the philosophy of the Birmingham City Schools System. The library media center is a learning center for the entire school. It is a place where students and teachers can find a multiplicity of well-organized resources to aid in whatever learning is in progress. The emphasis is on the individual and the learning situation rather than on materials. Our library media center provides materials in adequate quantities to stimulate the student to want to learn and grow to the fullest extent of his capabilities. The library media center provides areas for quiet reading, for exploring, for individual and group instruction, for reference work, for listening and viewing, individualized technology use, a well-equipped technology lab for classroom usage and for utilizing digital curriculum instruction, a conference room and a media production room dedicated for preparation of media needed by students, teachers, and librarian.
