Mission Statement

Jackson County middle school libraries are committed to providing resources, support, and instruction that will enhance the schools' curriculum and aid in the development of all students. It is our mission to ensure that students are digitally, visually, textually, and technologically literate. In order to achieve this mission, the libraries will provide a variety of print, nonprint, and technology resources that will extend instruction in all content areas and that will support students' personal growth and enjoyment. The libraries will instruct students as they locate, interact with, and ethically use these resources, and will collaborate with classroom teachers in the development and implementation of lessons and inquiry projects that will strengthen students' skills in information literacy and independent learning.
