The Learning Center is the place to find, evaluate, and use information. Information is everywhere…in our books in the library, in our reference section, and in the computer lab through online encyclopedias and websites.
A librarian helps students develop the skills they need to locate information, decide whether it is useful, and use it in meaningful way. We also teach students about internet safety.
These are life skills which will become more important as the children mature. In the elementary years, we introduce age-appropriate challenges which will be built upon in middle school. At all levels, these skills are taught in the context of the core classrooms and in collaboration with the classroom teacher.
As librarians we love books, and introduce the children to various genres of literature, such as realistic fiction, fantasy, or mystery. We help them locate information books and begin to develop an understanding of the Dewey Decimal system.
A librarian is in a school to help children unlock the pathways to knowledge, understanding, and success.
