Media Services (school libraries)

  • We provide our schools with the power, guidelines, and know-how to implement excellent library media programs that can help boost student achievement. We also assist schools in handling their library books and audio/visual materials, and we operate a districtwide lending library of 5,000 resources in our Teacher Resource Center (FCPS staff only). Among our services, we:

    • Receive and process all types of library materials;
    • Verify vendor orders, upload records, check in materials, and ship to schools;
    • Maintain the Union catalog including editing MARC records and creating original records as needed;
    • Coordinate online trials of information databases and digital content;
    • Assist district staffers in using equipment and creating materials in the Teacher Resource Center;
    • Help with packing and unpacking library materials for new and renovated schools;
    • Provide professional learning for schools' library media specialists.
