School libraries are a hub for teaching and learning. They are a source of resources and support that provide a doorway to information. Your library includes print and online resources, access to technology, and staff to respond to the individual needs of visitors. When viewed together: the library, classrooms and online environment make up what is called the Learning Commons.
The mission of this school library is to support the following:
1) Student Achievement - The school library must have a measureable effect on the engagement and achievement of students in meeting ministry curriclum expectations. It must provide a safe learning environment and respond to individual needs.
2) Literacy - The library supports student literacy to both foster a lifelong appreciation for reading as well as to improve achievement. The library collection must be inclusive and tailored to engage students.
3) Innovation - The library provides an environment that promotes unique methods of exploring, communicating and demonstrating understanding. As technology unfolds the library is a place where it is embraced; the entire school community is invited to participate as possibilities are explored and the new becomes familiar.
