Inquiry ~ Reading ~ Ethics
The Library Media Center - Your Information & Technology Center


The Mission of the Library Information & Technology Center is to ensure that all students are effective users and producers of ideas and information.
Through projects collaboratively created with teachers and one-to-one instruction, we teach our students to develop their ability to:
  • Inquire, gain knowledge, think critically, and extend knowledge
  • Apply knowledge to new situations and draw conclusions
  • Make informed, ethical choices in our democratic society and
  • Pursue personal and aesthetic growth.*

* From AASL Standards for 21st Century Learning

We accomplish our mission by:
  • Connecting students with books for information and recreational reading
  • Introducing students to information sources to support curricular studies and individual curiosity
  • Facilitate students in the information evaluation process (especially from internet sources)
  • Instructing students in proper use of sources by creating Works Cited pages and avoiding plagiarism
  • Guiding students in the creation of their digital Personal Learning Network
