    • assist individuals, small groups and whole classes in locating resources that support learning and independent reading
    • collaborate with teachers to assess student learning on media literacy standards and library research skills
    • offer assistance with technology and digital resources to students and teachers to foster engaging learning experiences.

    Library Assistants (EAs and TAs):

    • monitor the circulation of library resources
    • offer storytime to students in cooperation with a  licensed teacher
    • monitor and assist individual and small groups of students visiting the library to access its resources
    • promote literacy through displays and reading suggestions.

  • Assessment

    Librarians use circulation data, usage statistics and anecdotal feedback from teachers and students to improve library services for students and staff.
