The MS library program is a key component of the educational program and supports all subject area curricula. The information, technology, and media literacy skills in the library curricula form the basis for collaborative efforts with teachers to expand student understanding and abilities. The use of library resources is combined with subject area lessons and activities so that the skills required to use specific resources are taught at the point where students need to make use of them.
Our library program encourages students to use its resources in a variety of ways. Our teachers schedule time for classes in the library for research and instruction. Students may use the library independently during conference periods, study hall periods, and as needed from a class with teacher permission. Students can also participate as library assistants, a service activity that they can join as their schedule permits.
