The mission of the Campbell Middle School library media program is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. The school library media specialist empowers students to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, skillful researchers, and ethical users of information.
– Empowering Learners: Guidelines for School Library Media Programs
The CMS Library Media program supports learning by providing resources, guidance, and instruction that aid in the understanding and exploration of various concepts within a globally contextual framework. These resources help students to answer such questions as:
How can I understand other people in my community and beyond?
How can understanding the “when” and “where” of events help me to understand the world in which I live today?
What are some ways I can express myself, my culture, my ideas and beliefs?
What impact does the natural world have on me? What impact do I have on the natural world?
How do global issues impact me locally?
How does the concepts of peace and conflict relate to those of fairness and sustainability?
Students are encouraged to use the Commons before and after school for research and personal enrichment. Students are also welcome during the instructional day with a pass from their teacher. Lunch passes are available from the Commons staff or from the students’ third block teacher.
Use of Computers
Computers are provided for school assignments as well as personal growth and enrichment. Individual students may use the computers any time the commons is open, except when they are reserved for use by a class. All patrons must abide by the school district’s policies and regulations regarding the use of technology. There is no charge for printing, but printing is limited to school projects and assignments.
Book Circulation Policies
Students may check out up to three books at a time. Check out is for a three-week period, but items may be renewed as needed. We do not charge overdue fines, but students are responsible for lost or damaged materials.
Campbell Middle Media Commons welcomes feedback from all students, staff and other stakeholders, but we meet regularly with student and teachers to develop the guiding vision for the program and discuss policies, budget allocation, promotion, and other important matters. If you would like to volunteer to serve as a member of the advisory committee, please drop by the CM Commons in person to sign up!
