In Birdville ISD, educators recognize school libraries and librarians’ critical roles in promoting a positive school culture, providing information and digital literacy, and advancing academic achievement, especially literacy acquisition for all students. Librarians and our library programs are critical to student success in all aspects of literacy skills needed for the current and future world -- reading, writing, thinking critically, communicating, gathering and evaluating information, solving problems, and creating.
(Birdville ISD K-12 Librarians, 2022)
School libraries are essential, interactive, collaborative learning environments, ever-evolving to provide equitable physical and virtual access to ideas, information, and learning tools for the entire school community.
Provide a physical and virtual resource center that promotes independent lifelong learning through a variety of well-chosen materials, collaborative instruction, and ethical stewardship.
