Welcome to the Lewis Library Learning Commons!

The Lewis Elementary Media Center is open from 7:15 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. Monday through Friday. Classes visit the media center on a flexible schedule to receive media, research, & literary instruction. Individual students are welcomed to the media center with a library pass at any time.  We are also proud to share that our new makerspace area is now open! 

We visualize the makerspace as an ever evolving space that can be visited by individual students and small groups to explore technology and engage in curriculum enriching projects and activities throughout the school day.

The media staff includes Mr. Cole Sproat and Ms. Cami Lemr. We are ready and willing to help all media center visitors with research questions, online database searches, or finding that perfect leisure reading book.

Public Library PASS Program

PASS: Public Library Access for Student Success

We are pleased to announce that all students at Lewis Elementary School have instant access to the Cobb County Public Library System!

Through the PASS program, students simply need to know their student ID number (often referred to as their lunch number) & their birth date (2-digit month; 2 digit day) to checkout books and online resources.


  • Checkout up to 5 books at a time (or 1 audio resource & 4 books) from any Cobb Public Library branch
  • Gain access to thousands of eresources.  We recommend the ā€œOverdriveā€ App for this purpose 
  • Access two hours of computer time a day at Cobb County Public Libraries  
  • With PASS there are no late fees (but there is still a fine for lost books or those 45 days late)
  • Sorry, no DVD or Playaway checkouts with PASS accounts

Our Mission

- be the heartbeat of the Lewis Elementary community

- collaborate with other educators to create meaningful learning for all students

- provide quality literary, technological, and curricular materials to students and staff

- build information literacy skills among learners and teachers

Vision

We believe the media staff and the library media program play a critical role in the development of students at Lewis Elementary to become lifelong independent and socially responsible learners (Cambridge, 2003).



Goals

- Maintain a climate conducive to the students' growth in factual knowledge, literary appreciation, aesthetic values and ethical standards

- Assist students in the development of the attitudes and skills that enable them to become independent, lifelong learners

- Assist students by supporting the curriculum and instructional program of the school

- Provide access to materials that support a wide range of student needs, cultures, abilities, and interests

- Provide a framework for cooperatively planned and unified library media programming developed at the local level

- Enable access to communication that is presented in a context that is sensitive to an ethnically diverse body of students and parents regarding policies, procedures, materials, and events
