Vision: Reading to lead!

Mission: Provide expertise in 21st century information literacy by helping students access information in a variety of resources in a learning environment that will encourage exploration and discovery and foster responsible users of information for academic success.

Our Mission includes promoting reading by selecting a wide variety of reading topics at many different reading levels. We want students to have successful and rewarding reading experiences. Research indicates that students who read for pleasure consistently perform better in school than their peers who are not regular pleasure readers.
