**We believe the library is the central “heart” of the school community and all patrons should have access to resources including students, teachers, administration and support staff.

**We believe the library serves dual purposes: providing resources for reading pleasure and providing resources for learning and information gathering. **We believe that students should have access to library resources throughout the school day. Including, laptops, iPads, books, ebooks and databases **We believe the library must be continually upgraded and maintained to support a facilitating role.
