Philosophy of AZM School Library
AZM’s school library is an essential meeting center and the heart of the school that reflects its philosophy and goals in literacy.
AZM’s library is a hub for promoting critical thinking, gaining information, acquiring literacy skills and a commitment and passion for life long reading, learning, and researching. In the school library, students are encouraged to become critical thinkers, problem solvers, and researchers.
The library program at AZM School does not work in isolation, hence the librarian works in partnership with teachers, administrators and students to help develop the library skills, such as communication and research skills and meet the goals of our school’s common core standards curriculum contents.
AZM’s community works together to achieve the same educational goal and support the growth of creative thinkers and literacy leaders. Currently, we are working on increasing the library's digital and e-collections and co-created content to expand the digital frontier; more e-books are available, using the Destiny software and they are available for students to read online. The library is also working on encouraging reading among students through competitions.
