Holy Redeemer's media center has over 25,000 volumes and access to additional media online catalogs and resources. Destiny is our online catalog and includes links to these resources. The Holy Redeemer media center also contains our Cardinal News Network studio. Our news studio includes digital processing equipment to broadcast within our school.
Research, reading, and study skills are the focus of the curriculum in this area. The media center at Holy Redeemer complements all aspects of student learning. In addition to weekly instruction in skills addressing research and literacy, students are guided in developing an appreciation for reading. Collaboration between the media specialist and content-area teachers enables staff to develop projects and learning opportunities that reinforce classroom curriculum objectives.
