Library Mission & Vision

Mission Statement & Vision


The mission of Cherokee Elementary Library Media Center is to empower learners through intellectual growth, confidence, and accessibility to resources for exploring information and acquiring knowledge to become life-long learners.


Vision: Cherokee Elementary Library Media Center seeks to be the hub of the school by providing a wealth of resources to enhance teaching and learning in a caring, engaging, and encouraging environment.  The library media specialist aspires to plant the seed of wonder and love of reading through the acquisition of books, technology, and information resources that support learning.  This vision can be achieved through authentic learning experiences where teachers collaborate with the media specialist to engage students through learning opportunities that include inquiry and social interaction.  The library media specialist hopes to encourage learners in using critical thinking, information skills, teamwork, and creativity to become life-long learners.
