Rucker Boulevard Elementary

Media Center

Rucker Boulevard Elementary’s Media Center supports the Alabama Course of Study, which serves as the basis of our school curriculum, and the Information Literacy Skills published by the American Association of School Librarians and the American Library Association.

Rucker Boulevard's Media Center believes the mission of the school library media program is to provide twenty-first century quality instruction that enriches, enhances, and supplements the grade level curriculums.  This is done through positive collaboration with each grade level (1-6).  This instruction should stimulate students' interests in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas.

Rucker Boulevard’s Media Center provides open access to all students and faculty.  Atriuum, our automated management system, keeps track of our library collection through self (student) check in and check out.  Circulation check out statistics of over 16,000 (2015 – 2015) indicate that our Media Center is frequently visited.

Our Media Center’s collection consists of over 6,000 books, six networked computers (used for research, word processing, and in house book search), sixty iPads, and fourteen Surface RTs.  All handheld devices are available for class checkout to be utilized in conjunction with classroom lessons.

Students visit the library for classes bi-weekly.  They are allowed to check out 2 books per visit (one fiction/one nonfiction).  Students are encouraged to visit the Media Center as often as they like.

To view Rucker Boulevard's collection, check out OPAC where you can search our library for books!
