Library Vision/Mission 

It is the goal and the responsibility of the school media center to provide information access for the school community, to promote literacy and the enjoyment of reading at all levels of development, and to provide leadership in the use of information skills and instructional design. The library media environment shall be conducive to self-discovery and inquiry with a focus on facilitating the learning process. The activities and resources included in the library media program shall be in keeping with the mission of Dale County Schools.

All students at Ariton School are encouraged to use the library.  Students have access to books, magazines, computers and reference materials.  Students are allowed to check out items to use at home when needed.  Students are responsible for all materials checked out to them.  Computers are available to students for research purposes.
Elementary Students are encouraged to participate in the

Accelerated Reader Program. 


The Library is collecting Box Tops for Education and empty computer ink cartridges (laser & inkjet) for recycling. Please help our school and send these in to the library.
