Library's Mission and Goals

The Steven E. Pippin Library Media Center supports teaching and learning through the integration of school library media programs and technologies with the educational process.  The Library Media Center is a resource used as an integral part of classroom instruction.  Teachers may access library resources for or with students as they deem appropriate.

The goal of the Library Media Center curriculum is to acquaint students with the type of information sources available within the school and teach students how to search for, evaluate, and use information.  Technology and media resources in support of this instruction include:
  • Books which support both the academic and vocational area and the personal interests of the students;
  • Large collection of periodicals and trade magazines;
  • Computers;
  • Internet access;
  • Online databases and services;
  • Online card catalog.
