Welcome to the Robert E. High School Library

The library media program is a vital part of the total education program of the school. Our main focus is to support the mission and goals of Lee High School and Montgomery Public Schools as a whole. This is accomplished by providing an organized and readily accessible collection of print and electronic media resources that support a variety of curricula.

About the Library

The goal of the Library Media Center is to work in conjunction with the students, teachers and staff to enrich the curricula by using resources that improve literacy and comprehension skills and ensure that all students get a quality education. Therefore, the library provides students with thirty computers equipped with Atrium electronic cataloging, Alabama Virtual Library (AVL), research database, internet access, and various Microsoft Office Programs.

Atriuum electronic cataloging enables patrons to search the entire collection and gives the library staff extensive management capabilities. The library media specialist collaborates with teachers on planning, instruction, and evaluation. The media specialist also provides instruction in both individual and group settings. The logistics of the library are discussed during an orientation session which is attended by all students.

The library media staff assists in improving students' critical thinking skills by providing them with the opportunity to interpret, analyze, evaluate and communicate ideas and information. The development of these skills are critical in transforming students into life-long learners.

All students must have an MPS username and password to use media center computers. After the students and parents have signed the MPS ACCEPTABLE USE POLICIES, students are assigned their passwords. The Internet is used for school related research and lessons ONLY. Students MAY NOT go to NON-EDUCATIONAL sites. Lost Books:If you should locate a library book that appears to have no apparent owner, please return it to the LMC as soon as possible.
