It is the mission of the School Library Media Center to ensure that all students develop the skills that are necessary to become independent, capable, and competent information users and lifelong learners. These skills include the ability to locate, access, evaluate, organize, integrate, use and communicate information and ideas from a wide variety of sources and formats. Library instruction therefore, integrates information skills into curriculum units rather that teaching them in isolation. Student centered research projects are developed and coordinated through a cooperative effort with classroom teachers. These hands-on activities recognize the standards set by the State of New York.
Library Media Center materials are checked out for a period of one week. Students are encouraged to renew books that they have not finished reading. Books can be returned during open library times if they are completed early.
The library is open every morning for book exchange.
Students are encouraged to take out at least one book that they can read successfully on their own.
Please note: Children are responsible for all materials that they check out of the library media center. Lost or damaged materials need to be paid for or replaced before additional materials can be taken out. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
