About our Library

Welcome to the Floyd Central Library Media Center!

Mission Statement

The Floyd Central Library Media Center strives to be an integral part of the school’s instructional program and works to provide comprehensive support, instruction, and materials for all students and staff of Floyd Central. The library media center provides access to information in a variety of formats, thus meeting the curricular and personal information needs of the students. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the diverse resources to help them be successful in their Floyd Central Experience.

Another vital and one of the most important parts of our mission is to encourage students to start and / or continue a life long reading habit. Research consistently shows that a regular reading routine from a wide variety of genres and authors has wide ranging positive effects not only for academic but for personal growth as well. So our staff strives to give students the resources and opportunities to make this happen!
