Reading Rocks! EV Library
Our Library Mission
The mission of the library media program is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. This mission is accomplished in the following ways:
1) by providing intellectual and physical access to materials,
2) by providing instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas, and
3) by working with other educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students.
In grades 4-6, students will be learning how to be good online citizens. Topics include netiquette (manners on the web), cyber safety (including phones, Internet, games, and social media), evaluating sources, and preventing and handling cyberbullying.
In grades K-3, students will be learning how to use and handle technology responsibly.
Library students are assessed in three categories: Technology & Publication (using library and technology tools to create), Conducting Research (using library resources), and Digital Citizenship (participating ethically and responsibly).
The library serves almost 600 students in library classes every week, plus many more students during independent visits. We are always in need of supplies.
