The MISSION of the Library Media Program is to ensure that students have the opportunity to:
Learn information skills
Use information skills effectively to solve problems
Explore literature and reading
FOR THE PURPOSE OF LIFELONG LEARNING
Foundational skills are essential for the independent learner to be prepared for the ever changing world. These skills include locating, accessing, evaluating, interpreting and communicating information. Students must be able to read, think critically and to use technology at all stages of the information process.
Our collection of print and electronic resources reflects the needs of the instructional program and supports AACPS goal of students becoming information literate. Our collection of over 12,000 materials includes fiction, non-fiction, magazines and online resources.
• Books are circulated for a three-week period and may be renewed.
• Magazines may be checked out for three nights.
• Some reference materials may be checked out overnight.
• Overdue notices are distributed to students periodically.
• Students are expected to return their library materials on time and must pay for library materials that are lost or damaged.
