    Mission:

    According to the American Association of School Librarians, “The mission of the school library program is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information” (Section 1, para. 1). Equally important, is the mission of fostering a lifetime love of reading within each student. More than just a book depository, the media center is a place where research, learning, and collaboration happen. Therefore, the mission of the Hickory Elementary School media center program is two-fold: First, the media center, its staff and resources will transform the students and faculty into teams of skilled, enthusiastic, globally-minded, and technologically adept information users. Second, the media center by nature of its arrangement and offerings will inspire students to read and consider themselves readers.
