Library Media Learning Standards
AASL Standards
The Library Media program is aligned to the AASL Standards Framework for Learners.

Mission Statement
The mission of our Library program is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information using resources in a variety of formats; to provide opportunities to attain and master information and media literacy skills necessary for effective and ethical use of these resources; and to promote independent reading, digital citizenship, and lifelong learning.

Vision
The DMS Library Media program aspires to empower all students to excel and reach their maximum potential. The library media program adds a dimension of rigor to the curriculum and encourages students to become participatory learners. Through collaboration, the school library media specialist partners with the DMS learning community to maintain a diverse physical and virtual collection of resources that support and enrich learning and literacy to empower students to become critical thinkers, problem solvers, readers, and responsible digital and global citizens.
