The Joe B. Hill Library provides easy access to both print and online resource materials for students and faculty. The Library serves students and faculty in grades K3 through 12 and is named after a much admired, loved and dedicated teacher and administrator at Tattnall.
The mission of Tattnall Square Media Center is to (1) provide print and technological resources to support and enhance the curriculum, (2) provide instruction in reference and research skills, and, (3) promote a life-long love of reading for both information and enjoyment.
The Library is located across from the Spirit Shop outside of the Athletic Complex. There are 35 computers that can be used for word processing, research, and internet access to assist with classroom assignments.
The Library staff maintains both high interest titles in the collection and works to build personal relationships with students to instill a lifelong love of reading. By providing a rich culture, the Library supports students in exploring, creating, and synthesizing information to be successful in pursuing their academic excellence and individual passions.
In the summer of 2009, the Library went through major computer upgrades to enhance the collaborative nature of the space. Adding to the existing computers available, the Library gained approximately 15 updated computers and a large, wall-mounted touch screen to use when teaching. The new and improved look helps the Media Center staff support all disciplines and teach information skills to ensure that students are prepared for the 21st century and beyond.
