The library media program aims to provide the resources and guidance necessary for members of the Northwest school community to become effective and ethical users of information and to promote reading for pleasure.


The school library media program exists to teach and reinforce information literacy skills. As a result of innovations in technology, this program must be adaptable and ever-evolving. It is the responsibility of the library media specialist to assist students and staff as they learn to effectively access, evaluate, and organize information in a variety of formats, both traditional and technological. To encourage leisure reading, the school library media program strives to provide reading materials that reflect diverse interests and varying reading levels. By promoting reading for pleasure, the school library media program simultaneously supports basic literacy, information fluency, and a respect for learning.
