The Board recognizes that an effective school library media center is an important and integral part of the instructional resources of each elementary and secondary school. Consequently, the school district will provide and maintain adequate school library media centers.

Materials in school libraries will include a full range of print and audio-visual media. Library services will include instruction and help in the use of library resources. A school librarian will be employed in accordance with state regulations. The school librarian and assistants will act as teachers in the use of these resources.

The school librarian, together with the school principal and Superintendent, will develop such teaching programs and rules for library use as necessary to ensure maximum use of the library services and materials, and control of material.

The Superintendent, upon the recommendation of the school librarian, will annually request sufficient funds from the Board to maintain library services at a high level.
