CPMS LMC Mission Statement

The mission of the Clark-Pleasant Middle School Library Media Center is to ensure that students are effective users of ideas and information by collaborating with other educators to design learning strategies that support the curriculum. Our mission is to provide access to resources in varying formats, to provide instruction in information literacy, and to encourage a love for reading and learning.

Student Visits to the CPMS LMC

  • Daily hours are 7:35 am - 3 pm, open all lunch periods
  • Students are welcome to make independent visits with their classroom teacher's permission when they bring a signed pass from the teacher. Contact Mrs. Kern if you need to send more than three students at one time.
