The mission of our school library program is to stimulate curiosity, creativity, and collaborative skills while building the knowledge base of our students. Librarians guide learners as they access resources; examine, analyze, and enjoy the works of others; and create and share works of their own. As a result, our students will develop an appreciation of reading and become effective, ethical, and discriminating users of information and technology.
