Library Media Program Mission Statement

Our Mission

The mission of the Guilderland Central School District Library Media Program is to
ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information.
To accomplish this, we will:
- provide instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in
reading, viewing, and using information and ideas.
- work with other educators to design learning strategies
to meet the needs of individual learners. 


Our Library Curriculum

The Library Media Program plays a vital role throughout all aspects of the curriculum. The mission of the Library Media Program ensures that all students and staff effectively generate questions, access resources and create and share their new knowledge. In addition to managing the book collection and library web page, the Library Media Specialist provides instruction for individuals, small groups and whole classes of students. Areas of instruction include library orientation and circulation, literature appreciation, information skills and
utilizing technology and digital media.
