Library Mission Statement

The mission of the David L. Rainer Elementary School Library is to create a welcoming, vibrant, student-centered learning hub at the heart of our school.  We endeavor to foster cultural and aesthetic appreciation, inspire intellectual curiosity, promote ethical standards, and nurture a deep and abiding love of reading and literature. We are a collaborative, integral part of the instructional program, dedicated to providing our learning community with meaningful instruction, enriching resources, and supportive services, while considering the varied interests, abilities, and maturity levels of the pupils served.

Further, our purpose is to ensure that our students are empowered with information literacy skills – acquiring, analyzing, and utilizing information - and are motivated to become productive, independent, lifelong learners, for the betterment of themselves and their communities in the 21st century.

This mission recognizes the essential role of the school library program in the educational process as students reach their full potential.
