Wow! Check out how many Accelerated Reader books Lower School has tested on so far this year.

The school library media program is an integral part of the instructional process. The library media program is designed to teach the student skills in finding, interpreting and applying information to help the learner function effectively as an individual and in groups, and to support the educational program of the school. The library media program is also designed to instill an appreciation for literature and other media, print and nonprint. If students are to function successfully in a complex society, they must acquire skills and knowledge to become independent, self-reliant learners. Within the school, the library media program is a major force which helps the student develop these essential skills. The library media center serves as an extension of the classroom – a laboratory for using those skills that can be applied to information needs throughout the student’s life. In addition, experiences with literature and other types of media, both print and nonprint, promote the understanding of differences among people, and also help students gain insight into their own faith and learning.
