Library Mission Statement: The Our Lady of Mercy School Library is dedicated to helping students become independent readers, thinkers, and researchers; encouraging a genuine and lifelong love of reading; and fostering the 21st Century information literacy skills students will need to be productive and successful members of society. Our students will be able to access, evaluate, and use information effectively and to utilize the inquiry process (connect, wonder, investigate, construct, express, reflect) in all areas of the curriculum, as well as for their own personal information needs.

 Cambodian School Library Update

Thanks to everyone who contributed to last year’s Book Drive and Dress-Down Day to help us send books to Helping Hands School in Cambodia!  Thanks to your generous support, I was able to provide Helping Hands with many wonderful books for their new and improved School Library.  The children were very grateful!  

Here are some pictures of this amazing school and it’s even more amazing students:
