About the Library Media Center
The Union Springs Middle/High School Media Center serves approximately 400 staff and students and assists them with their research and learning needs. Currently, the library contains nearly 15,000 books, 15 magazine subscriptions dating back 3 years, and some local newspapers. Staff and students can access information through various sources including the Library's online catalog, the BOCES School Library System, and the Internet.
All students are taught how to access information, locate library materials and how to check out materials. Students also have the opportunity to utilize the library as a study center, serving up to 85 students at any given time.
The Media Center underwent an extensive renovation in 2005 and is located in the space that once housed the school auditorium. Please stop by and check out our beautiful Media Center!
The library staff strives to maintain decorum while monitoring behavior and the security of library materials. Currently, the library is staffed full-time by Mrs. Stephanie Berry, Library Media Specialist.
