Hempfield Library Program Receives Statewide Award

Hempfield School District Librarians    
Hempfield School District has been chosen as the winner of the 2017 Outstanding School Library District Award by the Pennsylvania School Librarians Association!

Our district library program was chosen for this award in recognition of the consistently outstanding K-12 library program and services offered as an integral part of the students’ educational program.

Target indicators for the award include:
  • Developing a vision for learning
  • Role of the library program in teaching and learning
  • Building a learning environment
  • Empowering learning through leadership
Hempfield’s school libraries are truly an example of what the Pennsylvania School Librarians Association holds as exemplary in school libraries, facilitating a learning environment that ensures students and staff are effective and ethical users of ideas and information and creating a collaborative environment that empowers students to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, and skillful researchers.

Our district librarians will receive an award during the PSLA Awards Breakfast on Friday, March 31. Congratulations to all!
