Welcome to the Henley Library/ Media Center
Ms. Guerrant, Media Specialist
Mr. Strong, Media Assistant
OUR MISSION is twofold. Our first goal is to help all students become
effective users of information and ideas. This means that we help you use your
creative, critical thinking, collaborative and communication skills to succeed
at all your school work. Our second goal
is to foster a love of reading in all students.
We will provide you with the latest and best of Young Adult literature
and make sure you have access to the classics as well. Let us know what you love to read and we will
put it in your hands.
RESPONSIBLE READING: In a
library that serves students ranging in ages from eleven to fourteen, a wide
variety of materials are needed. Obviously, what is interesting and appropriate
for eleven-year-olds may not be interesting and/or appropriate for
fourteen-year-olds and visa versa. When students first visit the library each
year, Ms. Guerrant issues her standard advice: "If you choose a book
that makes you uncomfortable or that would make your parents uncomfortable,
return it." The beauty of libraries is that they are all about choice.
Find a book you can completely "enjoy."
Parents can help students
enjoy the library. Ask students what they are reading and talk to them about
