Library Media Center

​I am Tammy West, and this is my third year as CES Media Specialist. I have been teaching in Smith County for 27 years, and I have a Master's degree in Library Science from TTU. The library is my favorite place. I love books and children!

I am Tammy Speck Smith, CES Library Assistant. I have worked in the library for five years. Before becoming library assistant, I was an educational assistant. I am a graduate of Smith County High School, and hold a Data Entry Certificate from Tennessee Tech Center in Hartsville. I also have completed several early childhood education classes at Vol State Community College. I feel privileged to share my love of reading with students at Carthage Elementary.

Media Center Madness....
Welcome back to CES! The first 9 weeks we are learning about: letters, numbers, library & computer rules, how to take care of books, 9-11-2001, Hurricanes, Johnny Appleseed, Tall Tales, and so much more! We are also practicing accountable talk and reading with a purpose. 1st through 4th grade students are allowed to check out one book at a time. Books are due within a two week period. They are able to come in during the day and check books in and out. Lost or damaged books cost $10.00. Kindergarten will start bringing books home in January.

Accelerated Reading is up and running! Please remember AR tests are taken at school, not at home. Any tests taken outside of CES will be deleted. Students are allowed to test throughout the day in the library, computer lab, and classroom. AR Celebrations will be held in December and May.

Book Fair
Our first book fair will take place November 12-16!
