What's Happening in the Library?

Chancellor Middle School

September: Welcome Back!

The mission of the library connects with the school’s mission of helping to prepare students for the future. The library program will prepare students for the future by teaching the essential information skills for the 21st century. The library will use the AASL Standards to support and enrich classroom instruction through collaboration and cooperation with teachers. The library will help prepare students for the future workforce by focusing on information literacy. Additionally, the library will help to promote and foster the love of reading through a diverse and current collection.

The Librarian

Hi, my name is Mrs. Binns! I am a native to the Fredericksburg area. I am extremely excited to be working in the same place where I went to school. This is my first year as a librarian. However, I was an English teacher for 8 years. I received my B.A. in English and M.Ed in Education at the University of Mary Washington. I have recently completed Longwood University's School Librarianship program. In my spare time, I love to travel and of course read! I am looking forward to working with all of the students, parents and staff who are part of the CMS Mustang family!

What Do We Do?

As mentioned in the mission statement, the library's purpose is to help prepare students for the 21st century work place. The librarian collaborates closely with classroom teachers to ensure students are practicing higher order critical thinking skills in lessons. Additionally, we promote and foster a love of reading. The library develops multiple programs to help encourage student reading. The library's goal is to provide a diverse and current collection to best support student learning and engagement.

What's New?

This year in the library, we are all about trying new things! The library is excited to announce three new additions to our program: Mustang Makers, Cafe Books, and Virginia Reader's Choice.
