Librarians...professionals teaching all students skills for life...

  • Reading
  • Technology
  • Information

The Standards for the 21st Century Learner
(published by the American Association of Librarians) forms the core of the Garland ISD library program.

We believe:

  • Reading is a window to the world.
  • Inquiry provides a framework for learning.
  • Ethical behavior in the use of information must be taught.
  • Technological skills are crucial to future employment needs.
  • Equitable access is a key component for education.

Learners use skills, resources and tools to

  • Inquire, think critically, and gain knowledge.
  • Draw conclusions, make informed decisions, apply knowledge to new situations, and create new knowledge.
  • Share knowledge and participate ethically and productively as members of our democratic society.
  • Pursue personal and aesthetic growth.
