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.

For every book you read and successfully pass the quiz, you will receive another entry form.  Five names will be pulled and those five students will be given the opportunity to select a book of their choice at the December 4 - 7 Scholastic Book Fair. Get going! Read, read, read! Earn as many entries as you possibly can!
