The mission of the Sophia P. Kingston Elementary Library Media Center is to support curriculum taught in the classroom, by providing a collection of resources and information that will placate the educational needs and interest of students and staff. We want all learners to become critical thinkers and effective users of information in all formats and media.


To instill in students a desire to be life-long readers and to have the ability to search for answers independently in the Media Center.

To acquire and maintain a balanced collection of media center resources, which represent a wide range of subjects, levels of difficulty and formats.

To provide learning experiences which encourage students to become proficient users of information and technology.

To support the Selma City School System's curriculum and the teachers' classroom programs by providing necessary materials and appropriate guidance and instruction to students.

Library Policies

Circulation Guidelines

Enrolled students may check out books for a period of two weeks. Books may be renewed once. Reference books, periodicals, and non-book materials will not be checked out to students. Teachers may check out materials for two weeks or longer if necessary. Materials may be reserved by teachers with a written request.

Students with overdue books will not be allowed to check out additional books until the overdue book is either returned or brought into the library to be renewed. Overdue notices will be prepared and placed in each homeroom teacher's mailbox for distribution to students.

Lost books must be reported to the Media Specialist immediately. If the book cannot be found, the student must pay for the book. Students will also be responsible for payment of damaged materials.
