NBHS LLC General Information

 

 


 

The NBHS Library Learning Commons (NBHS LLC) serves as the instructional backbone of the school. Students are assisted in utilizing library resources through individualized and formal class instruction by the school librarian. Students may utilize the facility before and after school and during their study hall periods by obtaining a pass from the librarians.

There are 32 PC computers, loaner Chromebooks for students whose device is being repaired by NBHS Technology Services and three Mac computers with iMovie and Garage Band. Students are allowed to print in black and white to the printer (from PCs or AirPrint from phones) and ask the librarians for school-related color copies to be made (upon "Special Request"). Online research subscription databases are available to students from home computers, from any computer in the school, as well as from school-issued Chromebooks. A large print collection of fiction and non-fiction books can be found on shelf in the NBHS Library Learning Commons.

MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the NBHS Library Learning Commons is to create an environment that encourages students to become effective users of ideas and information. To accomplish this mission the program provides intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats, as well as instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing and using information, and to encourage students to work together to solve problems. In familiarizing students with all aspects of the NBHS Library Learning Commons, the students’ comfort level in a library is amplified. Through this increased familiarity students are able to develop a sense of empowerment in the knowledge that they may utilize all aspects of a library to obtain information. Thus, the high school library media program creates the foundation for lifelong learning.
