The purpose of the school library is to ensure that students become “effective users of information.” This means knowing how to formulate good questions, how to locate information, and how to determine whether the information source is relevant and reliable. Of course, we always encourage the joys of reading for fun and pursuing personal interests.
The Mission of the library is to provide all students with the foundation they will need to be “effective users of ideas and information” in school and beyond (American Association of School Librarians 6). This library’s program will teach students and staff in a “technologically rich, literary environment, celebrating each student’s individual success” in support of Little Falls City School District Standards. The library program will provide a wide range of materials on varying difficulty levels and topics to encourage lifelong learning, reading and “intellectual curiosity” (Fort).
“Once a child learns to use a library, the doors to learning are always open.” ~ Laura Bush
