Welcome to the Library Media Center
ASD is at the heart of learning, and the libraries are at the heart of ASD!
The main goals of the libraries are to promote and foster the love of reading, to help students become independent lifelong learners through research and information literacy skills, and to encourage a creative culture. The library provides print, digital, electronic, and physical resources. Library resources are provided for the interest, information, and enlightenment of all members of the ASD community.
Library materials are selected to provide patrons with a wide range of resources, encompassing multiple levels of difficulty, in a variety of formats, with diversity of appeal, and allowing for the presentation of many different cultures and points of view. Library patrons are allowed to choose freely from the collection; teacher-librarians provide guidance as appropriate. Materials selected will enrich and support the curriculum and/or meet the personal interests of members of the school community. (ASD Board Policy 6.802)
Both ASD libraries are lively, welcoming spaces, with four teacher-librarians and a library support staff ready to assist students and teachers in finding the right resources for their personal interests and academic needs. The teacher-librarians regularly collaborate with faculty to integrate information literacy lessons into the school’s curriculum and to encourage a love of reading. A wealth of print, digital, and electronic resources are available to the ASD community, and students and faculty are welcome to drop in at any time throughout the day.
