Library and Tech Center

There is always something fresh & exciting going on in our libraries and technology labs! 

Library activities and opportunities include Birthday Books, AR Testing, March Reading Month, Read the Most from Coast to Coast, Bring on the Books, Million Word Club, Scholastic Book Fair...the list goes on & on!

In technology, we are most excited about our 1:1 Chromebook program for all middle school students. Not only does this afford great learning opportunities at these students' fingertips, it also frees up the rest of our computers in each lab and on the classroom carts for the rest of the student body to have ready access to the resources they need to seamlessly integrate technology into all subject areas. 

Don't forget to check out the media center link for students.  It contains many of the resources the BCCS students use at school and may be easily accessed from home as well!


Birthday Books

 Your child's birthday is very special. Many children enjoy bringing a treat to school for their classmates. As an alternative to a traditional treat, the library offers the option of purchasing a "Birthday Book" for our school library. A "Birthday Book" is a new book your child can choose from several we will have available. You may pay for the book's cost or donate an amount toward the cost of the book. It is a gift that many children can enjoy for a long time to come.

Your child's name and birth date will be placed in the book chosen and that book may be brought home and also shared in the child's classroom for about a month before it is placed in the library for circulation. If you are interested in purchasing a "Birthday Book" for your child, please contact a Media Center staff person. If your child's birthday is in the summer, you may purchase a book on his/her half-birthday.

To purchase a "Birthday Book" may cost more than a candy treat, but is longer-lasting and can be enjoyed by many children. This is not mandatory. It is an option you may choose as you wish. Thank you for your support of the Media Centers at Byron Center Christian School.
