Join us in creating an essential learning resource for our students.

First Baptist School is pleased to announce the establishment of a library in our James Island campus Media Center. 

 

Our Media Center will function as a learning hub for students, providing an array of electronic and print resources and supporting the technological needs of our student body. Students will be able to utilize Media Center resources to conduct research for history class, find a book to read for English class, access test prep materials for AP and college-entrance exams, and much more. 

 

As we navigate the first stages of curating a collection of print materials and implementing circulation software, we ask for community support and involvement. Donations to the Media Center will help provide items like book jacks, labels, and tape; circulation resources; and technological support. If you are interested in learning more about the Media Center library addition, please contact Kelly Blalock at blalockk@fbschool.org. ​

 

Short term goals:
  • Procure a collection of fiction and non-fiction texts for student enjoyment and classroom support texts

  • Create a “test prep” section that provides study materials for students taking the PSAT, SAT, ACT, and AP classes

  • Implement a circulation system, so students can request books while at home or at school

  • Incentivize and promote student engagement in reading

 
Long-term goals:
  • Create robust reference sections for each academic discipline

  • Implement a periodical section

  • Support the FBS community through outreach programs

  • Create a learning hub that promotes student achievement through a wide range of print and electronic resources
