The goal of the DIS library program is to ensure that students develop the ability to find and use information and to become lifelong learners and effective users of ideas and information. The library provides access to an information-rich collection of print, technologies, and research information, so that all DIS students have the opportunity to acquire:
- Reading Literacy: to perform as an avid and capable reader
- Technology Literacy: to be a skilled user of technology tools; to use technology to enhance learning.
- Information Literacy: to be an organized investigator, a critical and creative thinker, an effective communicator, and a responsible information user.
Each school day the library is open from 8:40am - 10:40pm and from 11:00am - 1:00pm. Students are welcome in the library at break, and during lunchtime, in addition to times when their teachers deem it appropriate.
Students may have out four books at a time, and almost all of the books may be checked out for three weeks.
Our computer lab is housed in the library and is available to students for school-related use.
Donations of books appropriate for middle schoolers are always welcome. If you have no-longer-needed copies of books suitable for middle school students, please consider donating them to circulate among our readers.
