Media Center



Welcome to the Dearing Elementary School Media Center, where we turn readers into leaders.  We operate on an open schedule and have students in and out all day long.  It is exciting to see our students coming in to pick out a book to read.  We are here everyday to serve students and staff in the most efficient way possible.
