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.



HELPFUL LINKS

ONLINE CATALOG  (CLICK ON TIMOTHY EDWARDS LIBRARY TO EXPLORE PRINT MATERIALS AND ACCESS  e-Books and e-Audiobooks WITHIN DESTINY DISCOVER)

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
