Library Learning Commons

Collections and Services
The district provides students and staff access to library learning commons collections and services. Library Learning Commons programs and spaces are future-oriented hubs of learning innovation and knowledge creation and are cooperatively designed to support collaboration that enriches the curricula. Collections reflect our common values of equity, diversity and cultural identity. Collection development practices are based on the curricular, informational and recreational needs of students, reflecting different points of view and perspectives.
