- provide access through resource sharing to current and relevant materials which results in a student-centered library media center that fosters academic achievement,
- ensure that all patrons can proficiently locate, access, integrate, evaluate and communicate information and ideas, and
- maintain a learning environment that stimulates and enriches an appreciation of literature, intellectual freedom, social responsibility and life-long learning.
