Library Media and Technology
The mission of the Lewis-Palmer Middle School Library is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. Our goal is to increase student achievement through collaboration and the inclusion of information literacy skills. We also want to share the love of reading with the students, staff and the community of LPMS.
LPMS students make weekly visits to the Library Media Center (LMC) with their language arts classes. These visits are up to 30 minutes and include time for students to browse the collection; check out, return, or renew materials; and update their library index cards with books they have read. Depending on the language arts teacher students may also have time for silent reading and book talks from the library media teacher (Mrs. Wilder). Mrs. Wilder also collaborates with Team and Exploratory teachers to provide relevant instruction on information/literacy/technology skills during “library time” as well as during regular classroom instruction time.
