Welcome to the Schmalz Library!
Katy ISD Library Services Mission Statement
The mission of the Katy Independent School District library media centers is to build a culture of literacy, inquiry, and creativity while empowering all patrons to become life-long learners and discriminating users of information.
. . . . . . . .
To execute this mission, library media specialists, administrators, teachers, parents, and the community must collaborate to:
- provide access to current and relevant materials,
- ensure that all patrons can proficiently locate, access, integrate, evaluate and communicate information and ideas, and
- maintain a safe and welcoming environment for diverse learners that stimulates and enriches an appreciation of literature, intellectual freedom, social responsibility and life-long learning.
