Library Mission Statement

The mission of the Lower School Library is to create a student-centered library media center which provides a safe, nurturing environment in which students can successfully seek information and ideas for their educational, informational, and recreational needs. The library seeks to promote an appreciation of literature enabling students to interpret meaning from various forms of literature as they become lifelong readers and learners.

The Indian Lakes Elementary Library maintains a collection of print books, magazines and eBooks. In order to provide accurate, up-to-date information for student reports, the library subscribes to comprehensive online databases, including encyclopedias and full text periodical sources. All databases may be accessed remotely by students (first through fifth) to facilitate student research at home.

The library seeks to ensure that our students acquire the necessary information literacy skills they will need to become productive learners with skills and knowledge necessary to lead successful meaningful lives in the 21st century. This mission recognizes the essential role of the school library program in the educational process as students reach their full potential.
