Mission Statement

The library media program mission statement in Information Power 2 states, “The mission of the library media program is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information” (ALA, 1999, p.6).

In the Madison Central School District Libraries, learners discover, create, inquire, and think critically through shared learning experiences supported by diverse resources, teachers, and tools to produce and communicate new knowledge. It is also the libraries' mission to foster a love of reading while empowering students in becoming life-long learners.
