Welcome to the Helena Intermediate School Media Center. Our library is a busy place where students may browse and check out reading materials, work on projects or other independent activities, or participate in lessons their teachers have scheduled with Mrs. Genry. During the 2014-2015 school year we circulated almost 82,000 books, and we are fortunate to have wonderful volunteers who help us meet the diverse needs of our students and teachers.

MEDIA CENTER HOURS: Our library is open from 8:00-2:30 daily.

CIRCULATION: Students may check out up to 3 books at a time for two weeks. If students have overdue materials, they may not check out until the overdue items are returned, but we do not charge fines at the elementary level.

TECHNOLOGY: In the media center we have 16 desktop computers for students to use, and we also have several carts of mobile devices such as laptops and Chromebooks for use with classes as well.

RESOURCES: Our Destiny catalog is available online by going to http://library.shelbyed.k12.al.us and selecting Helena Intermediate School. Individuals can see the materials available for checkout in our media center, and are also able to access our ebooks through this catalog.

EBOOKS: We are building a collection of ebooks that students can use and enjoy anytime/anywhere. Go in to our catalog (described above) and search “ebooks” or “digital” or “interactive” to browse of variety of electronic materials.
