    The Library/Media Center provides a safe, inviting environment where students and staff can find materials for pleasure and Educational purposes. Our program is flexible and caters to instructing students on skills and in becoming life-long readers and information researchers.




    Thanks to everyone who helped make our Scholastic Book Fair a success! We made some money to use for new materials for our Library/Media Center.


    Don’t forget that One Book One Community is going on in the schools and the Public Library. The schools and the public library work closely with this project. Keep reading with your children-it really pays off!


    Our Center is open from 7:15-3:00 for check-out of materials, research and AR testing. We have a schedule of classes but the Library/Media Center is always open for small groups and individuals. Staff may use the center until 3:00.




    1. Kindergarten-5th grade students may check out one book at a time for one week.

    2. A student may renew a book if the need arises.3. Books must be returned (or paid for if lost) before checking out another one.4. Reference books are not checked out by the students but may be used in the Center.5. The AR number of the student is the same as his/her check-out number and should be memorized.

    The Sunshine State Young Readers' Award program presents a selection of fifteen books chosen each year by a committee of Florida librarians. They are chosen for their quality and appeal, and represent some of the best in children's literature today. Students in grades 3 through 5 are encouraged to read at least three of the books, so they can vote for their favorite. Every year, the author of the book with the most statewide votes is presented with the Sunshine State Young Readers' Award.


    If students read 12 or more "Sunshine Books," they are also qualified to try out for the Wyomina Park Book Bowl Team.

Accelerated Reader Program

Accelerated Reader Program

This is a program where children read books on their level and do a computerized test (5-10 questions) on the book. They earn points for passing the test. Children can earn free books of their choice by earning a certain amount of points. We have a Reading Garden where paper flowers are placed when students meet a pre-determined amount of points. Children are recognized for their AR accomplishments-morning show, celebrations-with main reward being emphasized as a “good” feeling of a job well done.

To view a complete list of which books have AR quizzes, go to AR BookFinder Program. If you would like to see which books we have in our school library, go to Destiny, our online card catalog, and click on our school.
