Hello, I am Linda Hunter-Smith the Library Media Specialist at North Roebuck Elementary. I believe that schools exist for the students, therefore, the critical task of the Library teaching staff and administration is to plan appropriate learning activities for the students, enabling them to work both individually and cooperatively with peers. It is essential that flexible use of the materials and equipment be maintain for this reason.
In developing the media program, I have included a variety of print and non-print material in order to ensure a wealth of resources. The media center must facilitate student/teacher/librarian interaction, with emphasis always on the learner. It is imperative to provide the following:
- Equal access to resources
- Information that will support the curriculum
- Worthy and age appropriate literature, to instill a love of literature
- Various, effective research tools which the student will achieve success in all learning areas and complete their eduacational center possessing the skills to become lifelong learners.
