Happy Holidays from the RHS Library!
This holiday season, cozy up with a great book from our OverDrive collection. We have over 600 (and growing) ebooks and audiobooks for you to choose from. All students have been registered and set up through their English classes. More information about OverDrive can be found on the library website. Check out books using your school computer login username and password.
All 9th and 10th graders have had a series of digital citizenship lessons in November and December. We use Common Sense Media’s curriculum as a foundation, but we tailor the lessons to fit our students’ needs. All of the resources can be found on our Digital Citizenship LibGuide: http://rtsd.libguides.com/DigitalCitizenship.
Our Book Club meets every six weeks throughout the school year. All are welcome to bring their lunch and join us. Information regarding all book clubs this year can be found on our RHS Book Club Guide: http://rtsd.libguides.com/RHSBookClub.
Mission and Philosophy
The library media center is central to the learning process occurring in schools. Its program is designed to produce students who are information literate. Information literate students are effective users of information in a variety of formats. The school library media center is the vehicle that provides opportunities for students to attain information literacy and to foster a lifelong interest in acquiring knowledge while following their passions. A student-centered program is dependent upon a school librarian assuming a pivotal role in working collaboratively with teachers, administrators, and others direct to the program.
The school library media program in the Radnor Township School District will prepare students for their roles in the technology-driven global community of the 21st century by teaching students to find and use information efficiently and effectively. The library program will help students develop lifelong reading and learning skills and the motivation to take responsibility for their own learning.
