Karrer Middle School Library Media Center

Our goal is to prepare students for lifelong learning. Lifelong learners know how information is organized, how to find it, and how to use it.  In a complex world of digital information sources, our students must become information literate.  Information Literacy is the set of skills needed to find, retrieve, analyze, and use information.    
Secondary Information Literacy Curriculum - Grades 6 - 12
