A school library is a library within a school where students, staff of a public or private school have access to a variety of resources. The goal of the school library media center is to ensure that all members of the school community have equitable access to books and reading and to information technology. The school library exists to provide a range of learning opportunities for both large and small groups as well as individuals with a focus on intellectual content, information literacy, and the learner.  In addition to classroom visits with collaborating teachers, the school library also serves as a learning space for students to do independent work.
