Mission Statement

The CWS Media Center exists to support teaching and learning across the curriculum in our school. Students, faculty and staff members, parents, and friends of our school may use our materials and facilities to enhance the educational experience and for the betterment of our school. The media specialists will seek to promote, inspire, and guide students toward a love of reading, a quest for knowledge, and a thirst for lifelong learning. The media specialists will provide leadership, expertise, and advocacy in the use of technology, print, and electronic resources.


The mission of the library media program is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. This mission is accomplished by:

  • providing intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats
  • providing instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas.
  • working with other educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students.
