My name is Oma Moore and I am the Library Media Specialist here at OBMS. I graduated from Delta State University with a degree in Business Education. I am also a National Board certified teacher. This is my 13th year teaching in Desoto County Schools.

 Mission Statement

 

The mission of the OBMS Library Media Program is to provide students with the opportunity to become creators of information and lifelong users of information. The program must encourage students to inquire and discover as they become successful critical thinkers, skillful researchers, and creators of information. The library media center provides an atmosphere that promotes student success and fosters independent, lifelong learners and readers. Through direct instruction with students and collaboration with staff the media program provides a variety of services, programs, and resources the supports the district and school’s mission, goals, and objectives.
