It is the mission of the School 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.
