  • Mission Statement

    Media Center Mission: To ensure that students graduate as competent, critical, and ethical users of information. It is our mission to prepare lifelong learners; "information literate" citizens able to determine their information needs, recognize relevant information, solve problems, and effectively communicate the results of their research.

    Equally important is our goal to instill in our students a love of reading for pleasure. The Media Center aims to provide a variety of reading material in a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere that will promote reading and help develop in students a lifelong love of literature.
