Green River High School is ready for the start of the school year with an up-to-date media center.
The media center replaces the old library and includes research tools like books, laptops, tablets, e-readers, and computers.
The school has upgraded materials in the old library toÂ better fit the needs of students who have primarily utilized the location for computers and other technology, according to Green River High School Principal Darren Howard.
The media center still has several books available for student checkout, though, with sections including fiction, non-fiction, biographies, and specific content-related literature.
The media center comes complete with five e-readers for student checkout, 25 Acer Chromeboxes, and 25 Acer Chromebooks. In addition, new furniture equipped with charging stations give the area an â€œinternet cafÃ©â€ feel.
Students at Green River High School already have access to the Sweetwater County Library database from school, and incoming freshman are provided a library card and instruction on how to use the County Libraryâ€™s website. This provides students with resources from the library, including 24-hour tutoring service provided by tutor.com.
Welding students will create 3D metal art to display in the media center throughout the year, and art students will paint a mural on one of the walls.
