WELCOME

Midfield High School Media Center has a new and improved website.  You can search the library's collection, and even place items on reserve.  Please come by the library if you have any questions on how to navigate through the website. The library opens at 7:45a.m. and closes at 3:30p.m. The library has three mini computer labs for the purpose of small group projects and private student collaboration. The library recently added a mural of books on the wall for beautification, and it looks lovely; a conference area was also added for teachers and students' private work space and private meeting spot. A shout out to Mr. Frederick (Social Studies teacher) and his summer academy students for a job well done on our wall mural.

Who is in the Library?

Mrs. Payton, Library Media Specialist (M.Ed. Library Media University of West Alabama)
