    Library Media Center
    The Library Media Center is a hub for students and teachers seeking information related to all aspects of the curriculum.  Supplementing the more traditional library print sources--such as books and periodicals--and audio-visual materials, are the almost limitless resources provided by online databases, the Internet, links to a variety of library and information networks, as well as multimedia databases.  Two professional Library Media Specialists provide formal instruction in locating, managing, evaluating information.  They encourage students through individualized instruction and guidance not only to become independent users of information, but also to become knowledge creators. The center also provides instruction materials, production facilities, and support for the creation of a variety of multimedia projects.  Library hours are extended beyond the school day to provide maximum access.  During the library’s evening hours, community members are encouraged to take advantage of its many resources.  The goal of the center’s staff is to develop skill in defining and solving problems; competence in finding, critically analyzing, and using information from a variety of sources; and enthusiastic attitudes toward libraries and reading for a lifetime.
