The Crofton Elementary School Library Media Center

  • Library Media Center

    The Digital Media program provides students with the skills to become lifelong readers and effective users of technology and information. Students are provided with access to information resources and literature. They are exposed to a wide range of genres during instruction, including stories of imagination as well as factual accounts from informational text.

    They learn to locate, evaluate, and use information efficiently and effectively. Students learn the importance of a digital footprint and to use safe behaviors when using electronic communication. Students come to understand the concept of intellectual property and to use resources in a responsible manner.

    Through instruction in library media, students acquire the foundation needed to be effective users of ideas and information in everyday life.

    If you have any questions or wish to volunteer, please contact us.

Library Media Vision & Mission

  • The Office of Library Media Services envisions school libraries that are the hub of the school and are innovative, vibrant, and flexible spaces, staffed with school librarians who inspire students to become tech savvy and independent life-long readers and learners.

    The mission of the Office of Library Media Services is to develop students who are lifelong readers and effective users of technology and information. We do this by teaching critical thinking, research skills and ensuring access to information resources and literature.  The curriculum is designed to teach library media skills and information literacy at appropriate levels. In collaboration with the teachers, the library media specialist has developed an instructional program based on curriculum and the needs of the student population.

    Over 1.6 million items are checked out each year to students and faculty.
