The Deerwood Academy Media Center is dedicated to designing and maintaining a program that supports, compliments, and expands the instructional program of an International Baccalaureate Elementary School. The media center seeks to provide a learning environment which promotes inquiry, stimulates intellectual curiosity, encourages pleasure reading, and develops diverse interests for the enjoyment of life-long learning. Additionally, the Media Center will provide and promote instruction to prepare students to become independent users of libraries and information resources.

Parents, if you have any concerns, questions, or ideas, please comment. You will need a Google account. It is free to sign up!!!
