HAVE QUESTIONS? THE LIBRARY HAS ANSWERS

What is the LMC?
The LMC is the School Library Media Center. A library within a classroom with a variety of resources where information is available, both print and electronic; is automated and utilizes the Internet [as well as books] for information gathering and coordinates activities with classroom assignments; where students learn information skills that will prepare them to live and work in the 21st century.

Library Services
• Reference information
• Computer access
• Circulation of books
• Research Internet access

My goal is to help students become sophisticated—and skeptical—users of information, but learning to do this takes more than having the Web at our fingertips; it takes instruction, guidance, and the kind of teaching that I do, as a certified librarian.
 
“To read is to empower
To empower is to write
To write is to influence
To influence is to change
To change is to live.”
-Jane Evershed-


MY PHILOSOPHY

The Library media center links students, teachers, and other members of the learning community to the world of information by:
* Teaching students to become informational literate and lifelong learners,
* Working in collaborative partnerships to meet individual needs, and
* Providing access to information resources and technology.

To that end, my goal for the School Library Media Program is to: *Support curriculum and provide materials on all levels, for all subjects and interests of students, teachers, and administrators.

* Instruct teachers and students in research, study skills and use of the media center and its materials.

* Encourage students to develop critical thinking and to promote continuing educational and cultural growth in an inviting atmosphere.

* Provide multi-format material, such as books, films, periodicals, pictures, maps, computer software, CD-ROMs, and other resources as well.

* Include production facilities for use by students and teachers.
* Foster the love of reading and lifelong learning.

The library/media program is truly the heart of learning in our schools.
