Media Center

Welcome

Welcome to the school library at Webster! The Webster School library program goal is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information and to empower students to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, skillful researchers, ethical users of information, and productive users of technology.

About Us

Hours of Operation:  The media center is open for students to visit with their scheduled classes as well as during the school day. The library opens at 8:35 each morning and closes at 2:40 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. It is open from 8:35-1:40 on Wednesday.

Checkout:  Kindergarten and first grade students may check out one book at a time.  Second through fifth grade students may check out two books at a time. At least one book should be on their reading level.

Books are checked out for one week. Students may renew books in the library.

Overdue/lost Items: If an item is overdue, nothing else can be checked out until the item is returned. If the item stays out for a considerable amount of time, library staff will contact parents. If an item is returned significantly damaged, or said to be lost, library staff will send home a notice with the cost of the book. 

Behavior Policy: The behavior policy enforced in the media center is based on school-wide expectations. We also encourage students to be respectful of library materials and equipment as well as other students using the media center.

Meet Our Staff

Mrs. Laurie Bauer, Library Media Specialist

Welcome to Webster, my teaching home for the last 20+ years, but it’s Media Specialist since the 2016-2017 school year.  Not only is it my teaching home, but way back in the day, it was my school for 6th grade.  My own children also attended Webster during their elementary school years.  So, I have a love for Webster on many levels. Prior to moving into the media center, I was a classroom teacher.  I have taught first, third, fourth, and fifth grades here at Webster, and have also taught sixth and eighth grades around the corner at Murray Middle School.  One of the best parts of this position is being able to interact with all the students here at school. 

Mrs. Kathy Fazio, Media Assistant

Webster has been my home for the last 29 years, with 28 of them right here in the library.  I have seen many changes and worked with six different media specialists and six different principals.  My children were students here, and my grandchildren attend, as well.  The best parts of my day are interacting with all the students and suggesting books for them to enjoy.
