The more you read

 

The more you read, the more you know.

The more you know the smarter you grow.

The smarter you grow the strong your voice,

In speaking your mind or making a choice!

Our Mission

Our mission is twofold: to help every student develop and use inquiry thinking skills as he/she advances through our International Baccalaureate (IB) 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 share their new knowledge using 21st century tools.
