LIBRARY MISSION STATEMENT
The mission of the library media program is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. This mission is accomplished:
> by providing intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats
> by providing instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas
> by working with other educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students.
The library media center houses approximately 10,000 items, including books, magazines, audio and videotapes and DVD’s, and various pieces of equipment such as computers, overhead projectors, media players, and cameras.
Parents are invited to visit the media center to see the day-to-day operation and to make suggestions for a stronger, more functional center.
Our goal is to provide you with a foundation for becoming a lifelong learner and a responsible citizen who supports and uses the many resources available in this community or any community where you may live. We also strive to provide you with a wide collection of books for your reading enjoyment.
The library media center is only as good as the support it receives from the District, the school and its patrons. The return of materials ON TIME is crucial for supporting the curricular needs of all students. It is important for patrons to return materials for others to access. Waiting until the end of the year to return overdue books is not acceptable. It becomes each patron’s responsibility to meet deadlines and, out of consideration for other users, to return materials no longer being used.
