    Library Vision Statement: 
    to create a vibrant and dynamic learning commons where students can inquire, discover, read, view, listen, collaborate, create and present in a future focused learning environment. Students will be information fluent learners equipped with highly developed critical & creative thinking skills required for lifelong learning.


    ​Students are motivated and independent learners:
    • Students successfully employ information fluency, technology, and critical thinking skills in subject-area learning experiences.
    • Students are engaged in independent reading and inquiry-based learning.

    The library is a powerful intellectual and social space where students and teachers gather ideas, exchange points of view, and learn together:
    • Students and teachers have access to a qualified Teacher Librarian.
    • Students have equitable access to high quality resources in a variety of formats that support curricular and instructional goals and respond to diverse student needs and interests.
    •  Students have access to a wide range of quality recreational reading material to broaden horizons and boost literacy.
    • The library facility is welcoming, with a climate conducive to individual and shared learning.
    • Current technology supports multiple learning experiences with remote access to library resources.

    When in doubt, go to the library!" -Hermione Granger, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
