The philosophy of the school library media program is based upon the Common Beliefs of the American Association of School Librarians:
“Reading is a window to the world, Inquiry provides a framework for learning, Ethical
behavior in the use of information must be taught, Technology skills are crucial for future
employment needs, Equitable access is a key component for education, The definition of
information literacy has become more complex as resources and technologies have
changed, The continuing expansion of information demands that all individuals acquire the
thinking skills that will enable them to learn on their own, Learning has a social context, and
School libraries are essential to the development of learning skills.” (14-15).
