The Library Services team is dedicated to doing our part to support the district's mission to create students who are lifelong learners and 21st-century global citizens. More than 60 research studies throughout the nation have shown that students in schools with strong school libraries learn more, get better grades, and score higher on standardized tests than their peers in schools without libraries.
