The library media center’s programs are designed to encourage active pursuit of information, foster an appreciation of reading and literature, and create lifelong learners. The collection includes print and electronic resources; all items in the collection are supportive of the curriculum. The library teacher collaborates with subject teachers to plan lessons that will further student learning and develop students’ information literacy skills. Through a combination of resources, curriculum activities, and professional guidance, students are helped to acquire not only information, but also the skills and judgment to make effective and ethical use of that information in their oral, written, or visual presentations. Bibliographic instruction follows currently accepted guidelines found in the 7th edition of MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers.
Students visit the library during the day both individually (with a pass) and as part of a class session. No pass is needed for a student who would like to use library resources before or after school. Academic Support passes must be issued by a subject teacher and signed by the Academic Support teacher when the student checks into their Academic Support. The purpose for visiting the library should be stated somewhere on the pass so that the library teacher is aware of the assignment.
Students are expected to behave in a quiet, respectful manner while working in the library. All students should work on research or assignments. Students can check out two books at a time for a period of twenty-one school days, with an option for renewal at the end of the twenty-one days. Students are welcome to bring their devices to the library to assist with their work. In the event that the library must be closed during and/or after school, students will be informed as early as possible. No food is allowed in the library at any time.
