Media Center

Welcome to the Fallston High School Media Center!
We are open from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm, Monday through Friday.

     The primary mission of the Fallston High School Media Center is to ensure our students and educators are effective users of ideas and information.  We strive to fulfill this mission by: 

    • inspiring a passion for knowledge and love of reading 
    • providing students and faculty with varying approaches to effectively access information 
    • equipping students and staff with information and resources in a variety of formats 
    • providing philological instruction to promote competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing and using information and ideas 
    • collaborating with educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students 
    • providing materials which present opposing viewpoints of controversial and current issues to create awareness and foster understanding 
    • acquiring materials that will enrich and support curriculum, considering the various abilities and maturity levels of the students 
    • providing diverse information and materials

     Books and other materials are selected in various ways which include book reviews, book selection lists, bibliographies, and student, faculty and parent recommendations.  The collection is examined and weeded on a routine basis for currency and relevance. 

     All curricular areas are supported by library media services giving students the opportunity to refine their use of accession, location, and retrieval skills while researching specific topics assigned by content teachers.  Fully integrated concepts are designed to develop independent learners who will ultimately thrive in an information-based society with the skills and abilities to fulfill their personal and professional needs.
