Summer Reading Info!

Summer is a great time to go on adventures, be curious and read about what sparks your interest. Or, Summer is a great time to relax, kick back and read for pleasure. 

Below are links to several reading programs and resources to help your child(ren) dive into summer reading.

Welcome to the Media Center!

In Media class, students look for and checkout books, learn about literature, technology, research, and media literacy.  Students also learn to code, evaluate websites, and use different platforms for presenting facts.

All students come to Media Class once a week for a lesson and for book checkout.  I enjoy helping students find the right book to inspire reading, and the right resource to satisfy their research needs. 

MPS LIbrary Media curriculum is based on ITEM (Information and Technology Educators of Minnesota) and ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) Standards.

Please contact me if you have any questions or comments, or want to volunteer in the Media Center!  I can be reached at:  612-668-4410 or through email:  Melina.Mangal@mpls.k12.mn.us
