Walton Library / Media Center

Our Mission: To assist in improving every student's functional literacy. In addition to supporting the standards for research, technology, literature and reading in the academic subject areas, the media center provides materials and services to instill a love of books and reading and to promote independent life-long learning.

Responsible Reading:  In our middle school library that serves students ranging in ages from eleven to fourteen, a wide variety of materials are needed. Obviously, what is interesting and appropriate for eleven-year-olds may not be interesting and/or appropriate for fourteen-year-olds and visa versa. When students select books, Ms. Proffitt will issue the standard advice: "If you choose a book that makes you uncomfortable or that would make your parents uncomfortable, return it." The beauty of libraries is that they are all about choice. Find a book you can completely enjoy.
