MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the NBHS Library Media Center is to create an environment that encourages students to become effective users of ideas and information. To accomplish this mission the library media program provides intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats, instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing and using information, as well as encourages students to work together to solve problems. In familiarizing students with all aspects of a library, 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.
