Mission Statement: The mission of the School Library Media Program is to ensure that students and staff have access to, and are effective users of ideas and information, and to cultivate life-long learners. (Information Power: Guidelines for School Library Media Programs (AASL 1988) p. 1.)

This mission is accomplished:

  • by providing intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats.
  • by providing instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas.
  • by working with other educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students.
  • by using technology as an important tool for learning, communicating, and sharing knowledge

Thank you to all who came out to support Salt Point Center at the Barnes & Noble Bookfair on Friday, April 8th. Our students participated in a “Tournament of Champions Spelling Bee,” poetry readings, and children’s story time. Student artwork was on display, and local author MG Wells came to sign copies of her new book. Over $2000 worth of books were purchased in support of our school, netting a $300 gift card to be used on new materials for the Salt Point Library Media Center. We had a great time and your support was much appreciated!
