“The library has no biases. The information is all there for you to interpret. You don’t have someone telling you what to think. You discover it for yourself.” Ray Bradbury, author

Time is a very important resource. Once it slips out of your hands, there’s no way you can turn it back.

Our goal is to help students, staff and parents become competent, critical, and ethical users and producers of ideas and information. Our mission is to prepare students to become information literate, transliterate individuals who are able to determine their own information needs, recognize and utilize reliable and relevant resources, creatively and effectively solve problems and communicate with others, sharing their learning with the larger community.
