Mission & Strategies
The mission of Fairview High School’s Library Media Center is to be a welcoming, caring, and a helpful place where a smile, patience, and helpfulness are always to be found. Support the learning process by providing a wide range of resources that will give each student an opportunity to achieve academic success. We assist students, teachers and staff in becoming effective users of information, foster a love or reading and partner with teachers to teach information literacy skills. The library’s goal is to provide an environment where the love of reading will grow, research and computer skills will be enhanced, and ones intellectual curiosity will be stimulated and satisfied. A very important purpose of the Media Center is to provide support to the teaching staff, and to the students as they learn.
