Library Services Mission Statement
School libraries are an essential piece of the school learning community. School librarians and library staff help all learners achieve educational and personal success. School librarians curate high-quality, diverse information resources and literature in a variety of formats and provide inquiry-rich learning experiences in all content areas, all while fostering critical thinking skills, innovation, and creativity in our students.
Library Services Vision
We believe that all students in APS will possess digital and media literacy skills that allow them to find and critically evaluate information in addition to a lifelong appreciation of literature.
