The mission of the Brooklyn Middle School Library Media Center is to provide current, highly reviewed materials on curriculum-related subjects and topics of personal interests in print and non-print formats to students and staff members. The library media center strives to open up avenues of research where students can successfully seek information and ideas for their educational and recreational needs, to provide opportunities for instruction in research skills, information literacy, and media competency, and offer flexible scheduling for full class, small group, or individual instruction. The library media center seeks to ensure that our students acquire the necessary information literacy skills they will need to become active learners with skills and knowledge necessary to lead successful meaningful lives in the 21st century and to foster a life-long love of reading for pleasure.
