Library Media Centers


The Library Media Centers (LMCs) operate within a collaborative learning community of students, teachers, administrators, and parents to provide students with the information literacy skills essential to becoming lifelong, independent learners.  The LMCs are organized around a student-centered program that provides authentic, creative learning activities that support the teaching process and a broad range of support services that foster competencies in acquiring and using information and ideas, as well as reading for pleasure.

The Escuela Americana Library Media Centers are housed in separate facilities, which are centrally located in the Lower School and Upper School.  The Lower School library serves students in grades PK through Fifth.  The Secondary Library serves both the Middle School and Upper School. Each Library Media Center has been designed to meet the needs of its users promoting activities such as seminars and exhibits, and providing use of materials and equipment.
