Library Mission Statement
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 than teaching them in isolation. Student-centered research projects are developed and coordinated through a cooperative effort with classroom teachers. These hands-on activities are aligned with the standards set by the State of New York.
