The Media Center/Library consists of physical and visual items for educators to use in their classroom. We utilize Insignia Library to make it easier for teachers to reserve items online. Booking items is now simpler than ever! You can also e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call ahead for pick up (a two hour lead time would be appreciated).
For library items checked out through Insignia online: each district/site has a designated delivery day for weekly delivery. Deliveries are completed by the MCOE Warehouse staff. Please email email@example.com to coordinated pick-up of items. You can also designate that you want to pick-up items any day of the week when booking your items.
