    Mission Statement
    o inspire a passion for knowledge and a love of reading, to teach students to become skilled users of information tools, to develop life-long learners, and to integrate technology into the school curriculum through collaboration. To provide learners with access to resources available through technology and digital learning tools.  

    Vision Statement
    Now and in the future, the Grant Library Media Center will serve as the center for active and engaged learning. The Library Media Center will support student achievement through personalized learning, collaboration, problem solving and critical thinking, with a focus on developing skills for the information age and the digital world.

    In Addition:
    At Grant Elementary School we use a flexible scheduling in our media center. This allows students to exchange books they have finished reading for another as soon as needed without waiting to "go to the library" with their class. Many students visit the library daily to exchange books or to just read in a quiet place. 

    Taking Care of our Books
    1. Clean your hands before you read!
    2. Turn the pages from the corner.
    3. Use a bookmark to hold your place.                                         
    4. Keep books away from anything wet!
    5. Have a safe place to keep books at home.
