    Library Media Vision and Mission Statement

    Vision of The School Library Media Program

    In collaboration with the school's learning community, Alabama 21st Century library media programs will be the center of teaching and learning by providing access to quality collections and technologies and by extending services beyond the library media center's four walls and the school day.

    School Library Media Program Mission

    The mission of the library media program is to support the school's instructional program to improve student learning and student achievement. This mission is accomplished:

    1. by ensuring learners will be able to independently inquire, think critically, and to gain, create, and share knowledge.
    2. by providing real and virtual access to appropriate, high-quality resources and services during and outside the school day.
    3. by participating in curriculum development and design of learning activities; and
    4. by facilitating professional development for the learning community.
