Mission and Vision of the Ortho Library

Libraries are for everyone


The mission of the Ortho Library is to create a welcoming, inclusive environment that empowers students in their growth as lifelong learners who are enthusiastic readers and provides them with curricular opportunities to access, evaluate, use, create and share information in an effective, ethical and competent manner.


The vision of the Ortho Library is to provide all students with the ability to access relevant and diverse texts and empowers them to critically analyze information and use it to make improvements in their lives and to promote a more just society. We seek to build an innovative, anti-racist, and culturally relevant Library program driven by input from all stakeholders. We recognize that our students and families come with valuable assets and thrive when our schools, families, and community partners collaborate to meet individual and collective needs.
