Welcome to the Randolph Elementary School Library Media Center!
The Randolph Elementary Media Center aims to empower students to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, skillful researchers, and ethical users and creators of information. Over 11,000 resources are available to support learning goals for the entire Randolph community!
Students may visit the library every day to exchange books, visit the MakerSpace, take Accelerated Reader tests, complete assignments and research, or quietly read.
