Vision: Texas school libraries are essential, interactive, collaborative learning centers, providing physical and virtual access to ideas, information and learning tools for the entire school community.
Mission: Certified librarians and trained staff nurture a culture of literacy and inquiry throughout the school community. An integral part of instructional teams, librarians and library staff collaborate with teachers on curriculum, technology, design and delivery. They maintain a professionally curated collection of print and digital materials and assist learners in locating resources that match their academic and personal interests. Librarians and staff model and teach information literacy and digital citizenship, empowering learners to make ethical, informed choices in an increasingly complex and evolving global environment.

It provides for free access to all expressions of ideas through which any and all sides of a question, cause or movement may be explored. www.ala.org/tools/challengesupport
