Patriot High School Library Media Center Mission Statement

The mission of the Patriot High School Library Media Center is to provide a welcoming environment where our patrons value the principles of leadership, integrity, character, and pride. The library will provide a program that ensures that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information.

This mission is accomplished:

  • By providing intellectual and physical access to resources in all formats
  • By providing instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas
  • By integrating curriculum, resources, technology, and staffing
  • By collaborating with other educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students

In order to accomplish this mission and to allow our users to become accomplished 21st Century learners, we will strive to incorporate the essential Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens and The Leader in Me.
