- Access to Information - by providing equal access to information resources all students and staff can prepare to be lifelong learners and informed decision makers, while developing essential critical thinking skills.
Promotion of Literacy - by providing access to diverse literature, reading platforms, and research resources, the library strives to develop a love of reading and the responsible use of information technologies.
Collaboration and Innovation - the library staff routinely teams with teachers to integrate information literacy within the curriculum and share best teaching and learning practices. It also provides a place for students to work with innovative technology and collaborative activities.
- Multi-purpose Space - the library space is designed for multiple different dynamic uses, from providing a quiet study or reading space, access to collaborative tools, or the latest technology.
