Library Media Department Vision: To prepare all students to succeed as life-long learners, independent thinkers, knowledge creators and problem solvers.


The Library Media Program strives to ensure that every student is information literate and proficient in the use of information in all formats including current and emerging technologies. We will provide curriculum instruction and professional development opportunities to enable students and teachers to use technology creatively and effectively for teaching and learning and to construct and communicate new knowledge

Through effective teaching and engaging learning experiences we will create a community of life-long learners, critical thinkers, insightful readers, and ethical  users of information resources prepared to participate in an evolving global society.
