Portrait of a Birdville LibrarianSchool librarians serve many roles within the school community: leader, instructional partner, information specialist, teacher, and program administrator. We have established these guiding principles as a reflection of our values as librarians and professionals. We are:
- Instructional Partners
- Information Specialists
- Literacy Teachers
- Program Administrators
With skilled librarians leading the charge, school libraries evolve from quiet reading zones to active, flexible learning spaces for student collaboration and innovation, such approaches move students to become designers and creators engaged in real-world applications of their learning who are better prepared for success in college and a career. - Bob Wise, Alliance for Excellent Education PresidentMissionThe mission of the Birdville Libraries is to provide a resource center that promotes independent lifelong learning through a variety of well-chosen materials, collaborative instruction, and ethical stewardship.
