    The Library Mission statement: The mission of the library media center is to create
    information literate citizens who effectively access, evaluate, and use resources to
    encourage and prepare students to be life-long learners.

    The library provides materials and services that meet academic, technical, personal,
    and social needs of the school community. Materials for school libraries are selected
    By professionals who are trained to develop library collections. Collections are based
    on the needs of each school’s population, curriculum, and are independent of their
    personal opinions or beliefs.

    The media selection policy includes a wide range of materials with a varied range of
    reading and interest levels. Book selection is based on but not limited to student interest,
    instruction, cultural representation, socio-economics and various points of view. Because
    libraries are forums for information and ideas, books are provided for the interest and
    enlightenment of all students and teachers.

    As with all other aspects of a student’s education, parents are encouraged to be involved
    in a student’s book selections. The books in the media center, whether part of a specific
    reading program or not, are available for the review of all patrons.
