Middle Grades Program of Studies - Library Media Centers
The libraries of Indian Trail and Liberty Bell both offer a diverse collection of materials to meet the needs of middle level learners and our teachers. The library collections feature a variety of new, popular, and engaging books on a wide range of topics and levels so that all students have access to the books that are just right for them. Students are encouraged to read widely in a variety of formats. Both library programs center on the shared foundations and key commitments of the American Association of School Librarians Standards Framework: Inquire, Include, Collaborate, Curate, Explore, and Engage.
