Library & Media Center

"Today a reader, tomorrow a leader."
~ W. Fusselman ~

 

Welcome to the Reidsville Middle School Media Center! Our library has over 8,000 books for research and recreational reading as well as magazines, board games, and a professional collection for teachers.

Our media center hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. We have open circulation and students are welcome to come in at any time during the day as long as they have their school planner or a Raider pass signed by their teachers.

Students may also use the media center and computers for research after school until 4:00 pm. Additional times may be arranged prior to the date needed.

We look forward to assisting students in finding recreational reading materials as well as resources for information. We hope that as the school year progresses, all students will become critical thinkers and problem solvers through the utilization of technology tools, visual media, and other informational sources.

If you have any questions, please contact Mr. David Edrington, the media coordinator, at (336) 342-4726. He will be glad to help you!
