• The Oakland Library Media Center Mission

    At Oakland School we believe that all students will learn and succeed. The following steps will make the Library Media Center a key part in achieving this vision. 

    Library Media Center Goals

    We will:

    • Share our love of reading and work to help others learn to love reading.
    • Make the Library Media Center a welcoming, active place. Encourage individuals, small groups, classes, parent and community groups to use the LMC and its resources.
    • Make the Library Media Center a place that prods curiosity with its collection, displays, and lessons. 
    • Build our community through an appreciation of diversity.  Make this evident and visible in our collection, displays and projects.
    • Make the Library Media Center known to the worldwide community by sharing our ideas and stories through the LC website.
    • Be aware of standards established for learning, literacy, information literacy, and technology and establish an environment where those standards are known, and all learners strive to achieve them.
    • Develop collaborative projects with classrooms, other schools, and other learning communities. 
    • Evaluate trends in libraries, literacy, information literacy, and technology to see how our school might best use these new ideas.
    • Promote the use of technology to explore, organize, and create.
    • Seek opportunities to share knowledge through workshops, small group sharing, and individual instruction.
