Welcome to the Media Center! My name is Sarah Severson and this is my eleventh year at Heards Ferry Elementary, but my first year as the school METI. METI stands for Media and Educational Technology Instructor. My job is twofold. I promote and foster a love for reading through class checkout, ebooks, the book fair, and ordering new and relevant books that students are interested in. The other portion of my job centers around creating a 21st century learning environment. Click on this link: 21st Century Learner Standards to learn more! I am so excited to work with all the students in the school this year! I will be pushing into classrooms to lead and coteach lessons about educational technology, research skills, information literacy skills, digital citizenship, and more! I am also working closely with the teachers to help integrate technology into daily lessons!
The Media Center is open from 7:10 - 2:10 Monday - Friday for students. Parents are welcome in the library after front desk check-in. Parents are able to check-out additional titles for their students to support reading at home and also volunteer in the library with shelving books, shelf reading and special projects throughout the year. Please feel free to contact Sarah Severson at email@example.com if you have any questions regarding library resources, the Accelerated Reader Program, Office 365 or any other library related question.

AR Book Finder
This is a great site to find books that have AR Quizzes associated with them. Most titles from your home library, public library and school library are listed on this site. Remember, many books have been re-published so the picture may not match the exact book cover your child is reading. That's okay, read the description and more than likely it is the same book.
