Specialty Spotlight: Media Literacy

Because reading and access to books are the core of both academic and personal competencies, media literacy classes include time in the library which gives students space and time to listen to read-alouds, browse for a “just right” book, read a book for pleasure, and to develop their love of literature. Learning to use the online catalog using appropriate search techniques, to post a book review, or to learn more about a subject of interest, boosts their digital skills as well.

Gillispie’s library collection is online at http://gillispie.follettdestiny.com, and can be accessed anytime from any device!
