Parent Volunteers

The Moharimet Library Media Center is a place where children come to work, learn and explore. Services are provided to children and teachers as part of a comprehensive educational experience. These services are designed to assist the learner in his/her ability to find, evaluate, generate and apply information. The Library Media Center team provides students with materials and guidance to assist in classroom assignment works, pleasure reading decisions and general information gathering. Our goal is to engage students while teaching them to inquire and think critically.

Students are free to check out materials as needed throughout the school day. The flexible schedule allows cooperative planning between the library media specialist and classroom teachers in identifying and meeting information needs of students. The library media program is integrated into all areas of school curriculum. The library media specialist's time is scheduled relevant to the needs of students and staff. The adaptable schedule provides students the opportunity to learn and apply information literacy skills to classroom inquiry projects.

The library's automated system can be accessed from anywhere, 24/7 connecting the library collection to the classroom and home. (A link to the library collection is also available on this website. See Library Catalog.)
