Hello from Mrs. Walters!

Welcome to the Central Middle School Media Center page!  We are fortunate to have a growing collection here in the Media center in addition to the HUNDREDS of great books to read on a device using our online bookshelf!  The link and instructions are listed below.  Middle school students have access to not only the middle school titles, but also elementary and intermediate titles.  With so many choices, everyone can find a great book to read!
 
I also help with many of our student tech issues, so let me know if you are having trouble signing in or password issues.
