Mission and Vision 

The Cockeysville Middle School Library Media Program supports the school’s mission and vision to motivate and empower learners to experience academic and personal success.  Our library cultivates a supportive learning environment using resources and instruction which are aligned with the classroom curriculum, school goals and national library media standards, and which nurture individual interests, social emotional development and a culture of reading.  Students have access to a variety of high-quality digital and print resources and technology tools within and beyond the school day, in order to become effective and responsible users of information.
