Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested. ~Francis Bacon
The library media service is evolving to meet the needs of 21st century learners in the digital age. The major function of the LMS at Prairie Trail is to open a world of inquiry and wonder. This year the LMS will be a collaborative instructional partner with teachers in the classroom. The LMS will also function as an instructor of information literacy skills, teaching students to access, evaluate and use information in the content of the curriculum.
The climate of the LMS will convey the message that learning to read and love of reading are top priorities. The LMS will have a wide variety of resources, both print and non-print materials. Students can visit the LMS to checkout materials the traditional way, or they can access a book from their electronic device while at home or anywhere there is inter net access. There will also be book clubs during the day and after school.
