The purpose of the Valdosta High School Media Program is to support and enhance the VHS curriculum by offering resources to patrons (students and staff) that meet their instructional needs. There are two media centers designed to facilitate ease of use. The media centers are reading rooms, learning labs, and work centers for the entire school. The Media Centers hours are 7:15 - 3:15, Monday through Friday.
The long-range goals for the media center include: 1)increase awareness and visibility of the media program, 2)increase circulation, and 3)update the collection.
Some highlights of the VHS Media program:
Destiny is our web-based electronic catalog. Students can search our collection as well as reviewed websites.
The VHS Media Center is now an Amazon.com Associate.That means Amazon.com will pay the VHS Media Center a few cents for each dollar you spend. To help us take advantage of this great opportunity, however, you must use this link.
The VHSMedia Center is participating in the FundingFactory® Recycling Program! This fundraiser is FREE and simple because there’s nothing to sell, no paperwork to fill out and no deadline. The program runs year-round, accumulating constant income for our efforts. But we won’t get very far without your support. Please donate your empty printer cartridges and used cell phones to the media center, and we’ll take it from there!
If you have questions or cartridges or cell phones, call 333-0537.
