Welcome to the Media Center!

Welcome to the Media Center!

The Windom Media Center is a combination of library, computer lab, classroom, book collection and staff resource center. It is located on the lower level of the building and can be accessed from the first floor hallway. All classes High Five through 5th grade come to Media every four days. Media classes provide information literacy instruction to students that will allow them to become critical thinkers and successful 21st century learners. Student goals are:

I am a Library User.

I am a Reader.

I am a Researcher.

I am a Communicator.

I am a Responsible Digital Citizen.


Library Book Procedures:  


On their scheduled media day students check out books to read at home or at school, and should return them on their next scheduled media day. If students are not finished reading a book it may be renewed.

Overdue notices will be sent home each quarter.   If a book cannot be found we ask families to contribute to the cost of replacing the book.


Meet the Media Specialist   


My name is Sarah Rose.  I love to teach, read, and write.  I am lucky to be able to do all three here at Windom.  I have a degree in elementary education from the University of MInnesota, an MFA in writing from Hamline University and a Media Specialist license from St. Cloud State.   I have been a classroom teacher  for many years-- kindergarten, first, third and fifth grades.  When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family. 

You are welcome to  visit the Media Center anytime.   If you would like  to volunteer to help shelve or check out books to students please contact me.
