Norman Public Schools Library Media Mission Statement

The mission of the Norman Public Schools Library Media Program is to assist students in the development of the skills necessary for independent life-long learning. Emphasis is placed on the appreciation and enjoyment of literature and the motivation of reading for pleasure as well as for information.

To accomplish this mission, library media specialists and teachers work cooperatively to plan and provide units of study which integrate information skills with classroom content. Through these instructional experiences students learn and apply skills which enable them to locate, select, evaluate, interpret, organize and communicate information. A partnership is essential to the success of this mission. It requires the support of the administration, the active involvement of teachers and the instructional and organizational skills of the library media specialist.
