CHS Library/Media Center
The purpose of this site is to help Columbus students, staff, parents,
and other community members access online resources and information quickly and
effectively, encourage reading for pleasure and promote good research skills. In
an information age, literacy demands not only the ability to read and write, but
also the ability to process information and communicate effectively.
