The mission of the Brandywine Heights Library Media program is to ensure that students and staff are Information literate. Information literate people are effective users of information in a variety of formats (print, non-print, electronic…). The Brandywine Heights Area School District’s library media program is the vehicle that provides opportunities for the students and staff to become information literate. The librarians work at developing full integration of the library media program into the curriculum, establishing a partnership among educators, parents and administrators. The library media program makes a commitment to the library users to provide universal and unrestricted access to information and ideas.
The mission of the Brandywine Heights High School Library Media program is to offer leadership in areas of locating, processing, evaluating, synthesizing and utilization information in a variety of print, non-print and electronic sources. These skills must be integrated across the curriculum to prepare students to become life-long learners of information literacy. This will help the students to become independent, self-motivated learners. To accomplish this purpose the department provides all services necessary to place materials fully cataloged, and ready for circulation, a management system fully designed to facilitate ready storage and retrieval for full utilization by both faculty and students.
The High School library has over 13,000 individual titles in our collection, with a total of 14,378 in our collection. This year we have added some e-books to our collection! We currently subscribe to 14 print periodicals, and 2 newspapers.
Students are able to check out both fiction and non-fiction titles for 21 days at a time.
Reference material is available for overnight use.
If a students fails to return materials on time they will be charged .05 per day for fiction & non-fiction materials. Reference & audio visual materials are .25 per day.
Students will be notified in homeroom with a printed notice if they have overdue materials or outstanding fines.
If these are not taken care of after 3 notices (3 weeks).
Fines do not go away at the end of the year and having outstanding fines or overdue material may limit some of the students activities.
