The Boaz City School System library media program will promote literacy and learning through the development of effective lifelong readers and the creation of information literate citizens in a climate that fosters personal responsibility, values learning, and respects cultural diversity and independent thinking.
The Boaz City School System library media program is devoted to promoting literacy and encouraging the development of effective lifelong readers and information literate citizens. The program is committed to working alongside teachers in collaboratively developing information literacy among our students and staff in their effective and responsible selection, evaluation, assimilation, and use of information, while providing educational and technological opportunities for students and staff in keeping with current trends in technology and learning and the Alabama’s School Library Media Plan for the 21st Century Learner. The program strives to provide resources that support the enhancement and development of our state curriculum in addition to providing a wide variety of materials that support and reflect the varied interests, values, points of view, ethnicities, socioeconomic characteristics, and academic abilities of our school community.
While supporting the overall school curricula, the Boaz City School System library media program follows the standards and objectives set forth in the Alabama’s School Library Media Plan for the 21st Century Learner and the Alabama’s School Library Media Handbook for the 21st Century Learner. Each school library may specify these objectives based on school grade level.
