Library Media Program
The mission of the Hempfield School District Library Media Program is to support the curriculum being taught in classrooms across the district and to ensure that students and staff are effective users and creators of ideas and information.
- Provide intellectual and physical access to material in all formats
- Provide instruction in the use of resources in all formats
- Stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas
- Work with other educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students
At the elementary level, students receive both isolated and integrated instruction. Elementary students receive isolated skills instruction and time to check out materials once per cycle. The elementary librarian and classroom teachers also collaborate to provide integrated instruction, which allows student learning to be meaningful, authentic and focused on problem solving.At the middle school and high school, students receive instruction via an integrated approach with other disciplines. The integrated approach permits students to develop information literacy skills as the need of these skills naturally emerges from the curriculum.
School Library ResourcesHempfield school libraries are the vehicles that provide opportunities for students to attain information literacy and foster a lifelong interest in acquiring knowledge. Each of our libraries maintain a collection of resources, including print and non-print materials as well as access to electronic database services and the Internet. All school libraries have access to the POWER Library where you will find materials of interest in most subject areas for all age groups from young children to adults.
