The Stults Library Media Center

Mission: The mission of the Stults Library Media Center is to be an essential part of the MDCA community by supporting the curriculum needs of students and teachers as they strive for excellence by guiding them to use information meaningfully.

Goals & Objectives: 

  • To expose students to a large variety of literature with the goal of instilling a lifelong love of reading
  • To encourage collaboration between the media specialist and classroom teachers to fully integrate information literacy and the school curriculum
  • To provide unlimited accessibility to the media center for the entire school community throughout the school day
  • To lead students to use information meaningfully
  • To provide a variety of resources to meet the needs, interests, learning styles, and culture of all stakeholders

When Can I Visit the Media Center?

Students are encouraged to use the Media Center. Preferred hours are 30 minutes before the start of school, during 10-minute break, and after school for research, reading, computer use, book checkout, etc. Destiny is used to provide a Library Search of materials available to the students. The circulation of materials depends on grade level and is found on the Policies and Procedures page.

The Media Center is open from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday-Friday.

Media Center Resources

At the center of our Media Center is the Media Specialist — a trained information expert that will put you in touch with “just right books.” Currently the Media Center holds a little over 12,000 books, videos and audios. These are on hand for teacher, parent, and student resources. We have many different genres, so finding something of interest is not an issue. Books are clearly labeled with reading levels by the AR book guide and a dot system to assess content in place. Additionally, the Media Center also houses a Maker Space complete with 3D printers and an engraving machine. Once trained on the use of these machines, students may use the Maker Space to produce projects. We continue with a close partnership with the W.T. Bland Public Library in Mount Dora. Any student of MDCA may have a library card. An application is available in the Media Center or at the library if interested.
