Mission Statement of the School Library Media Program
The mission of the Wayne County School libraries is to teach for learning by all students, in an environment that nurtures that process and assures equity and quality by all.
To ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. This mission is accomplished:
- by providing intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats
- by providing instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas
- by working with other educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students.
