Goals of the Pine Point School Library

To provide materials (both print and non-print) and services which support and supplement classroom curricula, meet the individual research needs of students and provide for teachers' professional development and growth.

To provide formal instruction in the selection, evaluation and use of information resources (both in-house and Internet-based) so that students can function effectively and independently in other research settings throughout their lives.

To encourage a love of reading by providing recreational reading and displays and through special programming such as read-alouds, booktalks, and TV turnoffs.
