The Media Center
Magazines, videos, and books;
Lots of great resource outlooks.
You can print for 10 cents a page;
It's a good deal, but some people might rage.
We got a new look in twenty-twelve;
So many new books and new shelves.
If you need assistance just go to the front desk;
We will help you figure out the rest.
If you want cool books you know where to enter;
It's the Eastern Randolph Media Center.

STUDENT MEDIA ASSISTANTS
If a student is interested in becoming a Media Technology Assistant, he or she must receive approval from Ms. Johnson-Mills. Only Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors are eligible to be Media Assistants. Students work as assistants and earn one unit of credit. Students develop skills and abilities required in literacy, technology, and the circulation of instructional materials. They learn multimedia and social skills and apply literacy and technology. Students work the circulation desk, use advanced computer skills, troubleshoot, and give help to media center patrons. Tasks incorporate graphics, newsletters, databases, and helping others with media and/or technology needs.
