    Mission Statement


    The Library Media Center supports the Alabama State Course of Study, the basis of our school curriculum program and its publication "Alabama Library Media Handbook for the 21st Century Learner" as well as "Empowering Learners:  Guidelines for School Library Media Programs," published by the American Association of School Librarians and the American Library Association.  In addition, the Library Media Center endorses the literacy principles of the 2008 Standards of the 21st Century Learner of the American Association of School Librarians.

    The Library Media Center provides open access for all students.  The Library Media Center uses Destiny a Follett software product as its automated management system. 

    Destiny provides TitlePeek®, which gives students a chance to preview books on-line; and One Search®, which lets students get information from the school library and the Internet as a whole with a single search, and WebPath Express®, which limits student searches to approved, grade-appropriate web sites.  Destiny access is available to teachers and students at school and at home via Internet access
