The Ealsy Elementary Media Center is an exciting place with wonderful books to check out and read. Students have access to the media center during their special time, and can come in to get books from 7:15-7:50 or from 10:40-11:40 each day. Easley's media center operates on a partial-flex schedule. Teachers can bring their classes in for book check-out or lessons.

Morning Open Circulation 7:15- 7:50. The specials schedule is starting 5 minutes early this year. Please be careful about sending kids past 7:50.
“Afternoon” Open Circulation 10:40- 11:10
Any student that wants a book can come at either time. Please only send up to 4 children at a time at either circulation. In addition, if you have media special that day, please do not send students during open circulation.
We are no longer doing library cards for older students. Only students in grades kindergarten and 1st will be issued cards.
My schedule is partially flexed. I see K-2 every week in the afternoon. I see 3-5 in the mornings every other week. On the weeks I do not have 3-5, those times are available for bookings for special projects, lessons, or checkouts. To book a time, click here. Also, the link is on my website (the letters READ on the Easley home page) and in my email signature. I love collaborating with teachers, so let me know anything you need!
Easley and DPS subscribe to many online databases. I will be sending out a document with all usernames and passwords. Most of these links are accessible through the Student Resources page on the Easley homepage or on my website.
Tracy and I are more than happy to pull books for you that you need. Let us know what you need- topic, number of books, and date needed. You can do this using this form (located on my website and my email signature) or by email/leaving a note.
As a reminder- if you have an issue with a computer/BrightLink or iPad, please email the helpdesk at firstname.lastname@example.org and cc Jill. If you have an issue with a piece of equipment like a document camera, stereo or camera, email me.
