The Library has some exciting opportunities in store for you this school year. Our staff is ready and excited about this coming year and are committed to making the library your favorite place in the school.We strive to help all students and staff succeed. The Library maintains an extensive collection of printed and digital materials and assists learners in locating resources that match their academic and personal interests. A certified librarian and trained staff promote a culture of literacy, as well as model and teach information literacy. Students are able to make ethical, informed choices in an increasingly complex and evolving global environment. In our program, we strive to help students gain the skills, knowledge, and experience they need to effectively manage the vast amounts of information available to them.
A school library is an essential interactive collaborative learning environment that provides equitable physical and virtual access to ideas, information, and learning tools for the entire school community.
It is our mission to meet the educational and recreational reading needs of our learning community by providing resources, activities, and events that will assist patrons, students, faculty, and staff in becoming effective users of information, as well as develop the educational and recreational reading needs of our learning community.
