About Us

Information literacy for the 21st Century is defined as "the adoption of appropriate information behavior to identify, through whatever channel or medium, information well fitted to information needs, leading to wise and ethical use of information in society." (Sheila Webber, 2010)

An essential component of any school library information and technology (LIT) program is to "ensure students and staff are effective and critical users and producers of information and ideas." Our Library Information Technology Specialists (LITS) follow the LIT Framework model as outlined by the Washington Library Media Association for School Librarians (WLMA). Elementary students receive weekly information literacy instruction with a Library Information Technology Specialist. In addition, students at all levels have the opportunity to checkout print books, read ebooks online, or download audiobooks.
