Welcome to the Cottondale Elementary School Media Center web page!

 The mission of the CES media program is to ensure that all students and staff are effective users of ideas and information.  The media program seeks to promote an appreciation of literature and technology as students become lifelong readers and learners.  We will provide opportunities that impact student achievement as students complete assignments, explore ideas, and find a wide variety of recreational reading on many levels and topics.  We want our students to become lovers of reading and successful citizens of the 21st century.

We want this web page to extend the walls of our media center to better serve our patrons and want you to find it helpful in answering your research questions.
