Library PhilosophyThe program is built upon the belief that the library should be an active learning space, serving as an academic and cultural center of the school. The inviting, student-centered environment fosters a love of reading as well as creating. The facility provides equitable access to diverse materials for research and personal enrichment; its instructional program encourages self-exploration and independence. Through integrated, standards-aligned, inquiry-based instruction, the library fosters critical thinking, problem-solving, and multiple literacies. It also provides students with opportunities for creating, publishing, and sharing new knowledge, while guiding them in the ethical use of information. These experiences prepare students for college and careers, as well as life-long learning. Ultimately, the library plays a central role in the educational program of the school, providing leadership, collaboration, access, and advocacy of the school library program.
