Library Media Center
Welcome to the Praise Academy Library Media Center! The purpose of our Library Media Center (LMC) is to be an information and reading resource for our campus and to assist our students in becoming informed young people equipped to locate, evaluate, and use information effectively and to do so from the biblical worldview.
Our LMC is constantly growing and is for the use of our students, faculty and staff. While the school does not necessarily endorse all the contents of any book in the library, the position of Praise Academy is well understood to be in strict adherence to the doctrines and principles taught in the Holy Scriptures. It is understood that to meet certain academic standards and to provide books of various fields of research and content, the library must of necessity have many books of different types.
Our world today presents us with information from various resources. Part of our LMC ministry is to help students locate, evaluate, and use information effectively, and do so from a biblical worldview.

Scholastic Book Fair: Each year the library hosts a Scholastic Book Fair. Our next fair is scheduled for February 25-March 1, 2013. We invite you to visit our Scholastic Book Fair to experience a celebration of reading that provides families the opportunity to get involved in a universal mission: encouraging kids to read every day so they can lead better lives.
At the Book Fair you will find the latest and finest titles for kids, as well as books of interest to parents. Students, families, and staff will have the opportunity to shop for books in the library and online as well as contribute to the classroom, library and local charity. For more info follow this link.
Reading is vital to every child’s success, and raising kids as readers means getting involved while they’re young. Now is the time. Since there will never be a substitute for a parent’s direct involvement in his/her child’s education, please make plans to visit our next Book Fair. Hope to see you there!
