The mission of the school library media program is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. The school library media specialist (SLMS) empowers students to be:

• critical thinkers, 
• enthusiastic readers,
• skillful researchers, and
• ethical users of information.

Though our library is curated with middle school readers in mind, some titles may include some mature content.  For this reason, I always encourage families to be familiar with the books their children are reading.

Thank you,
Mrs. Longo
