Corona del Sol Library Policies
About the Library Media Center
The Corona del Sol Library Media Center is the school’s largest and most comprehensive classroom where students learn and apply the most important skills necessary to their education--21st-century information literacy skills. Guided by certified teacher-librarians, students learn to access, evaluate, and use the information to meet their academic and co-curricular needs.
