    The mission of the Hollis Brookline Middle School Library Media Center is to assist students and faculty members in developing information gathering expertise and become actively engaged in pursuing the lifelong skills necessary to meet constantly changing information sources.
    The Library Media Center program is student-centered and fosters various viewpoints, accommodates changes, and contributes to the well-being of the learning community.   Central to the program is the focus that students become evaluators of information, ethical users of information, and achievers of personal and responsible skills when interacting with information resources.

    The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them.
