Mission

James Blair Middle School fosters lifelong learning by providing access to information, knowledge, and ideas. The mission of the Library Media Center is to maintain an accessible school library with a learning-focused environment that is a dynamic resource center for students and staff.  The library program will provide instruction, support, and expansion of the school curriculum through access of information and inquiry focused research.

The librarian will support the students’ development and elevation of reading skills, digital learning, participatory learning, inquiry learning, technology literacies, and information literacy.
