Philosophy

The philosophy of the FAMS library is to enrich each and every one of our student's lives. Students read and access information for two very clear objectives: for knowledge - and for pleasure. It is the heart of the library program at FAMS that students grow both in their research skills and in their ability to choose literature and information for their personal enrichment, pleasure, and goals. The FAMS media center's strive is to develop in its students a life-long commitment to education and a joy for learning. We work to instill in our students a sense of personal and social responsibility, self-confidence, and a respect and appreciation of others.

Our library enriches and compliments a comprehensive, academic program that recognizes the individual needs of children - and prepares them for the challenges ahead.
