    MISSION STATEMENT
     
     
     
    The primary mission of the MHS Library is to stimulate the intellectual curiosity of the individual student and to enrich the educational environment of the School by providing a comprehensive and up-to-date resource center that equips students with life-long learning skills enabling them to live as responsible global citizens.

     Our goals are: 

    • to support the academic curriculum and the school ESLRs with a carefully selected, well-balanced collection of traditional and electronic resources that offer access to information both within and outside the library;
    • to teach research, technology and digital citizenship skills and to support students in their research and technology use;
    • to inspire creative and critical thinking; and
    • to provide attractive, comfortable areas that promote a positive learning environment for every member of the school community  for scholarly research, quiet study, collaboration and recreational reading.
