Our Mission

The Library mission is threefold:

  • To help every student develop and use inquiry thinking skills needed for Middle School,
  • To advance through our Spanish Immersion program, and
  • To develop lifelong readers.!   

The LMC will support this mission by providing all students and staff with a learning environment that supports critical thinking skills and hands-on learning.  The LMC promotes this mission by collaborating with teachers to ensure library learning is an extension of classroom while cultivating students’ ability to access a range of resources, and share their new knowledge using 21st century tools.
