Middle School Academic Departments


The philosophy of the library program is to foster intellectual curiosity, cultivate a love of reading, and promote lifelong learning. Our libraries are learning laboratories that invite students and faculty to explore, collaborate, construct, and share knowledge. Our extensive and diverse collections support our curriculum and the needs and interests of our community. The librarians subscribe in principle and practice to the statements of philosophy and policy in the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) National School Library Standards, American Library Association’s (ALA) Bill of Rights and Access to Resources and Services in the School Library Media Program.

Middle School Program Information
The library is the heart of the middle school and provides a welcoming environment for all members of the community. Students visit the library for information literacy instruction, research, and to learn about and select books for independent reading. Throughout the year, the library hosts visiting authors and provides opportunities for students to connect with one another through reading, including book club discussions and informal book chats. The library offers a quiet space to work and read, browse for reading material, and engage in maker and other activities. A host of additional resources are available via the web, including ebooks and audiobooks, online subscriptions, and databases.
