Mission Statement

The mission of the LBUSD Library Services Office is to provide leadership and support to school libraries, teacher librarians, teachers and students in achieving academic standards and preparing students to become lifelong learners. The Library Services Office provides curriculum support, facilitates teacher librarian collaboration, assists in the development of current print and electronic resource collections that meet the needs of diverse populations and promotes the effective ethical, legal and safe uses of library materials and equipment.

Students will develop the skills to become independent critical thinkers and carry the love of reading into adulthood. The school library, staffed with highly qualified personnel, will provide a collection of current print and electronic resources adequate and appropriate for user needs that support all curricular areas and personal interests.  School libraries will be recognized as hubs for student-centered learning.
