Coventry High School Library: About the Library

Library Mission Statement

The mission of the technology and library media program is to provide students with the instruction, resources, support, and tools necessary to effectively use information for both academic study and personal reading interests. This mission is accomplished by:

Ensuring the library media center has a variety of sources for both research to support academic study and the reading interests of students/staff 

Providing instruction to all students both in class and individually to have a solid foundation of the available resources;to have access to the resources;to have the skills needed to access the resources; and to have the ability to synthesize the information

Collaborating with colleagues in order to gain knowledge of both the needs of the students and the subjects they are studying in order to maximize the impact of the library media program on their education and lifelong learning
