Instructional Goals of
the Leal School Library Media
- To ensure that each child
acquires the information literacy skills necessary to
become a self-reliant, lifelong learner.
- To provide a rich
literature-related program which will play a vital part
in the development of lifelong relationships with
libraries, books, and reading.
Leal Elementary School Library
Media Center was built in 2001. It houses a collection of
over 17,000 books and learning resources; an
instructional area; and a table area for learning and s
study. An electronic catalog provides information about
and access to the collection in the library as well as on
networked classroom computers.
The library media
curriculum emphasizes reading/literature enrichment,
information literacy, and technology integration. Library
media activities are closely tied to national and state
learning standards and the classroom curriculum. Use of
the library and library resources are guided by the Leal
Library Policies and Procedures.
