Media Center

Welcome to the Media Center

Orange County Public Schools' library media programs are the hub of our schools and provide equitable access to resources that engage students in learning. Through promoting reading appreciation, teaching digital and information literacy skills, facilitating inquiry through both independent and collaborative learning, library media programs contribute to ensuring that every student has a promising and successful future.

Media Center Staff

Pursuant to House Bill 1069 (2023), each district school board shall adopt and publish on its website the process for a parent or guardian to limit his or her student's access to materials in the school or classroom library.

Library Access

A parent or guardian can limit his or her student's access to print and digital materials in the school or classroom library by completing the Library Access form in Skyward, or by completing a paper form (available upon request) and returning it to the school. Parents and guardians must choose from the following access options for their student:

  • Unlimited Library Access: is the default access level and means that the student may have full access to check out grade- and age-appropriate books that are available in their school's library, to include same grade level interlibrary loan, classroom libraries, as well as all digital library materials.
  • Limited Library Access: indicates the student may check out materials from the library media center or classroom libraries, but there are specified books the student may not have access to. The student will not have access to identified digital library collections and/or select iPad applications, whichever is applicable. The parent/guardian will specify what titles they do not wish the student to access below and directly provide the list of titles to their school.
  • No Library Access: indicates the student is not permitted to access materials in the library media center, classroom libraries, identified digital library collections, and/or select iPad applications, whichever is applicable.

Collection Development Procedures

Orange County Public Schools' collection development procedures are documented on School Board Policy IJL - Library Materials Selection and Adoption. Library media materials, whether purchased or donated, are selected by a school district employee who holds a valid educational media specialist certificate. Our school’s collection development plan can be accessed using the link below:

Library Catalog

Orange County Public Schools uses Follett Destiny’s Library Management System to catalog all materials maintained in the school library media center. The Destiny Library Catalog can be accessed by hovering over the Media Center tab on this website and selecting the “Destiny Library Catalog” option from the dropdown menu.
