     Mission Statement
    The mission of the TCSS libraries as an agency of both instruction and service is to encourage reading for pleasure and information, to support the curricular goals of our campuses, to teach appropriate research skills in an integrated context, and to aid each other.
     
    It is the goal of all TCSS Library Media Centers to provide the best quality resources, instructional learning opportunities, collaboration and instructional support for our learning communities enabling and equipping all students as they learn, grow, and achieve.
     
    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
