Mission Statement of the School Library Media Program
The mission of the library media program is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. This mission is accomplished:
- by providing intellectural and physical access to materials in all formats
- by providing instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas
- by working with other educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students.
"Libraries allow children
to ask questions about the world
and find the answers.
And the wonderful thing
once a child learns
to use a library,
the doors to learning
are always open."
Laura Bush, First Lady
