Media Center

Welcome to the Media Center

Orange County Public Schools' library media programs are the hub of our schools and provide equitable access to resources that engage students in learning. Through promoting reading appreciation, teaching digital and information literacy skills, facilitating inquiry through both independent and collaborative learning, library media programs contribute to ensuring that every student has a promising and successful future.

Collection Development Procedures

Orange County Public Schools' collection development procedures are documented on School Board Policy IJL - Library Materials Selection and Adoption. Library media materials, whether purchased or donated, are selected by a school district employee who holds a valid educational media specialist certificate. Our school’s collection development plan can be accessed using the link below:

Library Catalog

Orange County Public Schools uses Follett Destiny’s Library Management System to catalog all materials maintained in the school library media center. The Destiny Library Catalog can be accessed by hovering over the Media Center tab on this website and selecting the “Destiny Library Catalog” option from the dropdown menu.

The public has access to search any school’s library catalog for available titles. The brief video below demonstrates how to search a school’s library catalog.

Stakeholder Input 
Per Florida Statutes, the new book purchasing process must allow for stakeholder input, meaning all students, faculty, staff, and community members must have access to the titles we are looking to purchase. Below are lists of books that we are looking to add to our Media Center at West Orange High School. If you review the lists and have concerns with a certain title/title, please let us know as soon as possible by contacting Ms. Wallner at [email protected]. Thank you for your input.
