Students and their family members participate by reading 3 free-choice books each that fit any of the criteria below:
1. Read a book about a character who doesn't look like you or live like you.
2. Read a book about a topic you don't know much about.
3. Read a book in a format you don't normally read for fun (graphic novel, audio, verse, etc.).

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.
