  • Stimulating interest in reading and in finding and using information and ideas promoting the use of the media center by students and faculty
  • Working with teachers to develop educational strategies to meet the information needs of students and to augment teaching
  •  Supporting the school's curriculum and reading initiatives

Tell all the truth but tell it slant

 

Tell all the truth but tell it slant —

Success in Circuit lies

Too bright for our infirm Delight

The Truth's superb surprise

As Lightning to the Children eased

With explanation kind

The Truth must dazzle gradually

Or every man be blind —

 

-Emily Dickinson
