Our Mission as a Library System
While the Sacred Heart Library System is comprised of two separate facilities, the Elementary School Library and the Flaherty Library, both Libraries share the same mission and philosophy.
The mission of the Sacred Heart Library System is to:
• Support and enhance the intellectual curiosity of our students, while providing comprehensive, current, and comfortable resource environments.
• Support the academic goals of the faculty while inspiring our students to be life-long learners and readers through well balanced collections of both electronic and traditional library resources.
• Reflect our School wide mission that enables students to lead and actively support the future of the Church and global community through the development of their God-given talents
• Develop skills in accessing information and data efficiently, effectively, and appropriately.
The Sacred Heart Library System and its libraries are open to all learning styles and needs. We pride ourselves on our comfortable and welcoming learning environments. We are committed to be more than our collections of books! Our libraries are the hearts of our school community where student life is seen alive, stimulated by knowledge, while gathering and collaborating around new-found information. Our mission based learning environment supports the student in their present and future academic endeavors through guided learning of databases, scholarly research and the simple pleasures of reading.
