Library ServicesThe Pittsburgh Public Schools' Library Network is the active group of teacher-librarians and the administrative staff of Library Services who work together to educate and provide library resources to all members of the school-learning-community.
Vision Statement of the Pittsburgh Public Schools Library Network
Students served by the Pittsburgh Public Schools Library Network will be able to demonstrate age-appropriate information fluency, exhibit age-appropriate facility with the library and its many functions, and carry a love of reading into their adult lives. As such, the library will be the center of each school's "web of learning."
Mission Statement of the Pittsburgh Public Schools' Library Network
The teacher-librarian in the Pittsburgh Public Schools' Library Network will promote collaboration with the faculty and staff to achieve "Excellence for All." Each library will be a safe and welcoming place that includes current materials for both curricular and personal use, that are age-appropriate and support our schools' missions. The teacher-librarians collaborate with faculty to help students learn those skills needed for both lifelong learning and lifelong reading. They strive to make the library the place to develop and practice healthy and responsible habits for research and reading. The staff of Library Services will endeavor to support the teacher-librarians' mission so all of the students in our District are well-served.
