The mission of the Edgewood Junior High Media Center is to create an environment in which all of our students are encouraged to become life-long learners and capable users of technology, information, and ideas. Our aim is to help students become young adults who can access, evaluate, and interpret information by providing a well balanced and rich collection of print materials and databases. Our Media Center fosters an environment that embraces reading for pleasure as well as for knowledge.
