Colt Andrews Library Mission Statement

The mission of Colt Andrews Elementary School Library Media Center, in partnership with our learning community, is to provide our children with educational and social opportunities in a safe and nurturing environment focused on individual needs and abilities while providing a foundation of skills that will enable them to become lifelong independent learners and responsible citizens in an ever-changing world. This includes promoting the joy of reading, supporting the curriculum by providing access to information in all forms, and collaborating with staff members to provide engaging learning experiences for teachers and students. The library supports this mission by ensuring that all students and staff are effective users of ideas and information.
