Mission and Philosophy
The mission of the LTMS Library Media Center (LMC) is to teach all students to become lifelong readers, learners, and effective users of information within the library and beyond through both print and electronic resources.
The LMC operates under the philosophy that the education program of the school is strengthened by the quality of the library services provided. The resources available in the LMC are considered essential to learning and teaching and must be fully integrated into the curriculum to promote students' achievement of learning goals. Therefore, print and non-print resources are provided in various formats to satisfy the personal and instructional learning needs of students and staff who possess diverse learning styles and individual interests.
The library media program encourages all learners in reading, viewing, and listening for enjoyment, understanding, and informed decision-making. Critical information skills instruction is provided to enable students and staff to acquire information from numerous media, as well as gain confidence in their ability to obtain relevant and reliable information sources which will contribute to their personal intellectual growth.
