Library Media Center

Media Center is the heart of Shepherd Glen School. It is used daily by students, teachers and staff for story time, research, book selection, computer use and sometimes for assemblies and concerts. There are fiction and non-fiction books, magazines, reference materials, and videos for classroom use. Our Teacher Center has professional books, magazines and information on current trends and strategies in teaching. 

It is also the home to Maker Space and the Family Resource Center!
