East Hall Middle has been named the 2017 Judy Serritella Exemplary Library Media Program for middle school. One Georgia middle school library program is selected to receive this award each school year.
The Judy Serritella Exemplary Library Media Program was created to recognize library media programs that empower students to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, skillful researchers and ethical users of information both in vision and in practice.
“Exemplary library media programs go one step beyond and are a model for innovation, student empowerment and leadership in the school library community,” according to a press release on the honor.
The school hosted an open house Feb. 15 where media specialist Jennifer Parker shared “how the library media program effectively impacts the school as a whole.”
