    "The mission of the school library program is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information.  The school librarian empowers students to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, skillful researchers, and ethical users of information."  - AASL Standards, 2007

     

    "More than a building that houses books and data, the library represents a window to a larger world, the place where we've always come to discover big ideas and profound concepts that help move the American story forward and the human story forward." - Barack Obama
