Welcome to the Bishop Dwenger Media Center! The Media Center is available during the day for student use before and after school, during lunch periods, in study hall or with a teacher pass. While in the Media Center students can take advantage of our large selection of books for simple reading pleasure, school assignments or research.

At this time, students will be allowed in the Media Center before and after school only for printing purposes.
*Due to social distancing guidelines, students need to browse the online catalog and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with their book requests. I will then deliver them to you as soon as possible. When returning books, please return them to the library counter. They will then be quarantined according to ALA guidelines before they are available for future check out.
