School libraries are at the core of learning in today’s information age, and are one of a child’s first opportunities to discover the wondrous joys of reading and exploration. Here at SCUSD we understand the importance of sending our students on to college and careers with the skills that will allow them to be successful, accomplished and create a positive impact within their communities. We strive to empower our learners through the explicit teaching of 21st century literacy skills and to create a spark of joy around lifelong learning and foster lifelong reading.
SCUSD is working to provide students with the digital and information literacy tools they need to navigate effectively and ethically in preparing for college and career. School libraries provide safe spaces, where students can discover their passions and explore their ideas through diverse collections in a variety of formats and innovative programs enhanced by engaging teaching. All teacher-librarians, library media techs, and library media center staff and volunteers share and reflect the values that, either individually or through teamwork, drive our commitment to serve the diverse needs of our learning community.
