Media Library

  • The Broward County vision for school media centers is to:

    • Ensure equitable access to standards-based instructional materials, including school library media collections, and resources that support all curriculum areas in diverse formats to meet student academic, informational, and recreational needs.
    • Ensure equitable access to information technology in an environment that is safe and conducive to learning.
    • Provide leadership to initiate and sustain collaborative planning and teaching which integrate multiple literacies - information literacy, digital, visual, textual, and technological - into the curriculum.
    • Promote the use of engaging technologies in collaborative, inquiry-based learning environments.
    • Improve student reading skills by providing library media specialists with print, nonprint, and electronic resources.
    • Offer guidance in developing reading motivation programs and materials.
