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.
The library is open Tuesday-Friday from 8:00am - 11:00am and from 11:45am - 3:00pm. Students are welcome in the library before school, at break, and during lunchtime, in addition to times when their teachers deem it appropriate.
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.
