Memorial School Library Mission Statement:
The mission of the Memorial School Library is to serve as the heart of exploration and inquiry for our school. We seek to foster a welcoming, resource-rich, and student-centered learning environment where children can nurture a love of reading, discover their interests, pursue their passions, and become life-long learners. Through collaboration with teachers and students, and using principles of guided inquiry, we empower students to become critical thinkers and confident researchers, constructing their own knowledge as they learn to independently locate, explore, evaluate, and synthesize information in the 21st Century.
The media center references are carefully selected by the professional staff to enhance the curricula, to meet a wide variety of needs and interests and to encourage recreational reading.
