LIBRARY MEDIA CENTER
The library is a flexible access, resource-based environment available to all students and staff before, during and after school. Electronic resources include desktop computers, laptops and Chromebooks in the library and adjacent labs as well as devices for loan. Online access to subscription databases, eBooks and other research and information can be accessed through the library’s website. Other resources in the collection include DVDs, audiobooks, primary documents, fiction, nonfiction, newspapers, magazines and journals.
The library media program provides the foundation skills for students to become critical users of information, and readers for lifelong learning. Standards for the 21st-Century Learner published by the American Association of School Librarians provides the framework for instruction. Library media specialists collaborate with classroom teachers to integrate these skills aligned with state standards across the disciplines. Students are engaged in inquiry-based projects that focus on the information problem-solving process and critical thinking skills.
