Marcola School District Opens Media Center to the Public

The New Media Center At Marcola Elementary School Will Be Open To The Community.

The Marcola School District Media Center will be open to the community on Wednesdays from 4-7:00 PM this Spring beginning April 12th, 2017.

We have the pleasure of partnering with a group of volunteers, The Friends of the Media Center, to provide this opportunity. Community members will fill out an application to check out books or use computers. The volunteers will ensure that all users will abide to the District’s Media Center policies, take applications, check out and find books.

The Friends of the Media Center was formed this year by a group of people in our community that love reading and books. They also want to help the district update our new media center. They have several goals. One of the goals is to provide the community access to media center and the ability to check out books and access computers or WiFi. A second goal is to do fundraising to purchase books and equipment for the media center.

In the future, as we get up and running, more options will be available. We hope to expand services to include activities such as story time, speakers, programs for parents and seniors, makerspace, and other activities.
