It is the mission of the Library Media Center to ensure
that students develop the skills necessary to become
independent, capable, competent information users and lifelong
learners. These skills include the ability to locate, access,
evaluate, organize, integrate, use and communicate information
and ideas from a wide variety of sources and formats.
Instruction, therefore, integrates information skills into
curriculum units rather than teaching them in isolation. Student
centered research projects are developed and coordinated through
a cooperative effort with classroom teachers. These hands-on
activities recognize the standards set by the State of New York.
