Through formal and informal instruction, our school library program strives to:

The goal of the school library program is to ensure that our students become competent, critical,and ethical users of ideas and information. We strive to prepare life-long learners; information literate citizens able to recognize relevant and authoritative information, and effectively communicate the results of their inquiry and research. ​
