Crook County School District #1 Libraries Vision and Mission Statement

Our Vision

To instill a love of reading in the students of Crook County School District #1.

To be the welcoming heart of our school where all come to learn, discover, create, and connect. To empower students to be curious, passionate, respectful learners who explore, connect, evaluate, and create.

The library will enable our students to become seekers of ideas and information, while we help nurture an interest in reading, and will encourage a desire for lifelong learning.

Our Mission

We provide a wide range of relevant information and materials, using traditional and innovative methods, for all ages, to promote, encourage and support the diverse needs within our schools. We support and enrich our teacher’s curriculum and ensure the information is accessible to all of our students and staff.

We teach and provide up to date technology to enhance the teaching practices of the staff, and the learning of the students.

We aspire to empower learners to become critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, skillful researchers and ethical users of information.

We aspire to empower students to learn technology and 21st-century skills incorporating collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking, and digital literacy.

Collection Description:

Library staff select materials appropriate to the age and level of the users in our school libraries. We must also consider creating a collection that reflects the diversity of ideas and authors as well as being reflective of the population that our library serves.
