Messing Library Mission Statement

The Mission of Messing Library is to:

  • encourage the development of life long learners
  • collaborate with faculty to promote learning across the curriculum
  • teach information literacy skills
  • advocate a love for reading and libraries
  • provide a collection of materials reflective of the needs of the MICDS Middle School community.
 

What does a school librarian do?

 

School librarians are educators who cross disciplines and grade levels as they work to empower every student with the skills, resources, and tools to:

  • inquire, think critically, and gain knowledge;

  • draw conclusions, make informed decisions, apply knowledge to new situations, and create new knowledge;

  • share knowledge and participate ethically and productively as members of our democratic society;

  • pursue personal and aesthetic growth.

The ability to think, create, share, and grow in school and beyond is called Learning4Life
