Library Media Specialist, Mrs. Jennifer Kilgore
Serving the Muskogee School District for 42 years as an elementary and now secondary librarian, Mrs. Kilgore has been on district and building technology committees and has taught computer in-service classes for district staff members.
The Media Center is open from 8:15 in the morning until 3:30 in the afternoon except for a lunch and planning period each day due to only having one staff member this year. Some days, there may be a change to allow Mrs. Kilgore to accomodate classes. If at all possible, the MHS Media Center will be open continuously through the two student lunch periods (4thperiod)(approx. 10:45 a.m.-12:10 p.m.).
The purpose of the Muskogee High School Library Media program is to provide students and staff intellectual and physical access to ideas and information, to stimulate interest in using information and ideas, to instruct students in how to find, evaluate and use information and to instill in the students an enjoyment and appreciation of literature. Basic information skills must be taught and followed up with assignments that give practice in those skills. To achieve these purposes, the library media specialist select the best materials available, efficiently organize and circulate these resources in a centralized collection, and team up with the teacher to plan a program of instruction for students. A coordinated effort and commitment of the district, school administration and school staff contributes to the success of the program.
No food is allowed in the media center.
Students must have a pass from class to be in the media center during class hours unless accompanied by their teacher.
Seating capacity in the media center is 150. The library media center houses some 15,000+ titles, including numerous microforms, software programs, and computer databases that are accessed via the Internet. A large collection of ebooks have also been added. It has been reorganized in order to efficiently accommodate students and staff. An online card catalog program called Destiny by Follett allows students to search for materials available from the MHS Library Media Center on any of the 50 computers located in two labs. The computer labs also provide access to holdings of all Muskogee Schools by using the Union OPAC search ( Follett’s Destiny) icon. Internet, the Google mail/documents package and subscription databases are also found on our computer labs. Two classroom areas are available for scheduling which include a computer station, a Promethean board and an LCD projector.
