Library Mission and Vision
“The school library provides information and ideas that are fundamental to functioning successfully in today’s information and knowledge-based society. The school library equips students with life-long learning skills and develops the imagination, enabling them to live as responsible citizens.”

The Library Media Specialist not only encourages reading by providing access to a variety of material, but also promotes and teaches information literacy skills. With the integration of technology, these skills lead to students becoming effective users and creators of information; skills necessary for life-long learning to occur.
