    Bobcat Readers,

    The Sawgrass Bay Elementary Media Center is located in the front of the school right off the main lobby!  The goal of the Media Center is to provide an engaging environment that assists in a deep love for reading. The media center is the "heartbeat" of our school and offers a wide variety of experiences for all readers. New books are added each year to ensure that the interest level for each student will remain high.  
     
    Students visit the Media Center with their class every three weeks and twice that week. When students visit, they are instructed about various library skills to include the number of books they are allowed to checkout at a time:
    • Grades 4 & 5: two (2) books, 
    • Grades 2 & 3: two (2) books
    • Grade K & 1: one (1) book
    All books are due back when their class comes again to Media.
