Vision and Mission Statements

The school library media program exists as the hub of the school itself; it represents the correlating and supportive component of the overall educational program. With flexible scheduling, through cooperative planning, and with an awareness of the curriculum, the school library media staff
supports and extends classroom instruction.

The media center is a multimedia classroom where patrons are instructed in the use of print and nonprint materials and are encouraged to access, evaluate, and utilize information. The school library media program also strives to instill in students a love of reading, both for pleasure and personal growth, as it strives to develop a collection of quality literature.


Instruction

The media specialist works cooperatively with the classroom teachers to integrate Information Literacy Skills with specific content, as students do their research. Media lessons are offered on specific topics as well, including:

  • Library orientation
  • Using Galileo resources
  • Using the online catalog (Destiny) to search for fiction and nonfiction titles
  • Understanding Dewey Decimal system
  • Evaluating websites critically
  • Copyright and Fair Use Laws
  • Plagiarism and Paraphrasing
  • Note taking
  • MLA and APA citation
  • Using technology in final products
  • Research strategies
Operating Hours


The media center is open from 7:30-3:30 each school day and is available all 4 blocks of the instructional day.

Students need a media pass when they come to the media center. They may get these from their teacher, from the monitors at lunch and in the gym, or from the media specialist or media assistant.

Students may come before first period, after they eat lunch, after school, and during class with permission from their teacher.


Check-Out Policy

Students may check out up to two books at a time for a period of two weeks. Books may be renewed once. Overdue books will be fined ten cents per day, and no other materials may be checked out until the book is returned and the fine is paid. Students will be responsible for reimbursing the cost of lost books or books damaged beyond repair.
