    BEEMS Library Mission Statement

    The mission of the Bolton-Edwards Elementary Middle School Library Media Program is to ensure that students are effective users of ideas and information. The library media center strives to provide the school community with a wide range of materials on appropriate levels of difficulty that will encourage growth in knowledge, establish a life-long love of reading, and foster information literacy. 


    Goal #1: To foster a love of reading


    1.    Order high-interest materials (including books requested by students)

    2.    Maintain a nurturing, safe, and fun library environment where all visitors feel welcome


    Goal #2: To ensure students and staff can effectively access, evaluate, and use information


    1.    Teach students and staff how to use the Destiny card catalog

    2.    Help students learn how to find books (instead of locating the book for students)

    3.    Provide lessons on evaluating the credibility of websites

    4.    Maintain a list of student-friendly search engines on the library’s website


    Goal #3: To provide expertise in the use of and acquisition of instructional technologies


    1.    Assist students and staff with technology troubleshooting

    2.    Build leadership capacity by showing older students how to troubleshoot (and allowing them to help teachers)

    3.    Access funding for new technology through district mini-grants


    Goal #4: To participate in partnerships that support reading and enhance access to resources outside of school


    1.    Communicate the mission, goals, and objectives of the library to all stakeholders

    2.    Effectively utilize library volunteers
