The mission of the Library Media Center is to encourage, promote, and ensure Metea Valley High School Community members to become effective and discriminating users, and creators of ideas and information. By providing an environment for educational resources in print and electronic, as well as programs and services, we will encourage the development of the reading habit and use of the library in their pursuit of lifelong learning.
We believe that, in accordance with Linking for Learning, the Illinois School Library Media Program Vision states…
“The school library program is a critical component of every school’s total education program. Through the instructional activities, resources, facilities, and technologies provided in the program, students and staff become effective and efficient users and creators of ideas and information. In collaboration with teachers and others, the library media specialist:
· teaches information literacy through the content areas,
· enhances learning opportunities through technology,
· builds reading literacy, designs and delivers instruction,
· and provides intellectual and physical access to an organized system of ideas, information and resources.”
