Welcome to the John Lewis Elementary Library Media Center
The John Lewis Library Media Center strives to promote reading for excellence, achievement, development and success by providing a collection that is current, curriculum-based and in a variety of formats and levels. We have over 8,000 books, magazines for students and staff.
DeKalb County School System’s premier ONLINE CATALOG,
Destiny, is featured on our twelve student computer workstations.
Operating under a flexible schedule, students may visit the Library Media Center anytime during school hours with a pass to the library. Teachers may sign-up to bring their whole class as needed.
Kindergarten students may check out one book for a period of two weeks. Students in Grades 1-5 may check out two books for a two-week period. Teachers and staff have unlimited access to materials. Parents are welcome to check out materials as well.
No fines are charged for overdue books, but students will not be allowed to check out until the overdue books are returned. Lost or damaged books must be paid for according to DeKalb County School System’s policy.
The following annual book awards are featured in our Library Media Center:
Caldecott Award: Most distinguished picture book for children
Newbery Award: Most distinguished contribution to literature for children
Coretta Scott King Award: Distinguished books by authors and illustrators of African descent
Picture Storybook & Book Awards: Students in Georgia read nominated books and vote on their favorite each spring.
