Library Media Center 

Vision Statement

 

The library media center will serve as the school’s physical and virtual center for active and engaged learning. Utilizing the Learning Commons Model, (outlined below) the Library Media Center will support student achievement through inquiry based instruction, individual investigation, and innovative thinking, with a focus on developing literacies for the information age in a digital society.

 

Learning Commons Model

 

Different from the quiet, static reading space of traditional libraries, Library Media Centers should provide a dynamic physical and virtual presence that supports learning outcomes from every academic discipline and provides students with the information and technology resources needed to build knowledge.  As an extension of the classroom the Library Media Center should facilitate collaborative lessons, small group work, research, multi-disciplinary projects, personal inquiry, communication, interactive learning and a wide variety of digital media technologies.
