The Library Media Center (LMC) provides opportunities for students and staff to become effective users of information and ideas that are central to 21st Century learning. The Shroder High School LMC will equip students with access to information and gratification to produce life-long learning that supports the school and district curricula.
Library Media Center (LMC) Goals and Objectives
- The LMC is a place where information literacy is taught and students learn how to conduct research effectively using 21st Century tools. Students will utilize state-of-the-art digital information resources and partner with local, regional, and national information networks.
- The LMC promotes reading for pleasure and gratification by housing a wide range of books and materials that reflect the personal interests of students and support a life-long love of reading. Students and faculty have access to a rich collection of materials in several formats in the library.
- The LMC enhances learning by providing the resources that reinforce the curriculum and educational goals in all disciplines. The library works collaboratively with all members of the learning community so that students will find, evaluate, and select appropriate sources that are integrated with the academic content standards and the district curriculum.
- The LMC provides access to resources that expose learners to diverse ideas, experiences and opinions as well as critical thinking skills – a central tenet of the Paideia philosophy. Students access resources which reflect diversity in gender, culture, and historical perspectives.
- The LMC communicates and publicizes the school library media program to all education stakeholders.
