• Welcome

    Thanks for stopping by. Just like our media center at school, this space is dedicated to helping you find great books and useful information. You can search for books using our Catalog. You can find great resources to help with your homework. Have fun, explore, and don't forget to check out the SC Book Award Nominees...we'll be voting for our favorites in early 2017.


    Our Mission

    To help faculty, staff, and students become effective users of ideas, technology and information; to foster a love of reading; and to fulfill the informational needs of the school community.


    Policies and Procedures

    The media center operates on an open, flexible schedule. This means that patrons are welcome anytime. Students in the lower grades visit the media center on a weekly basis for story time and to check-out books. Students in upper grade levels visit in small groups to select books or to conduct research. All classes are encouraged to schedule time for collaborative lessons and group research.
    Students in 2nd -5th grade can check-out up to three books. Books are due back in two weeks.

    This will be my 28th year in the CRES Media Center! I was a stay-home Mom for over 20 years and raised three great kids—all of whom attended CRES. I am an avid koala collector and enjoy reading and visiting with my five grand-children.
