Welcome to the Saddle Brook Elementary Library Media Website!
The Vision of the Salome H. Long Memorial School Library Media Center is to provide a safe atmosphere that allows students to be creative and informed researchers, readers, and seekers of knowledge in an environment that nurtures diversity, curiosity, and lifelong learning.
The Salome H. Long Memorial School Library Media Center is the central hub of learning within the school. It is a place where students and educators alike are free to be creative in the teaching and learning of essential skills that are necessary to navigate the world of academics. Learners will develop the ability to think clearly, critically, and creatively about their choices and have the right to choose what they will read, view, and hear. Educators will be provided with the knowledge and resources to aid students in achieving their learning goals.
Learners will be encouraged to read for enjoyment on a regular basis, complete research tasks under the guidance of the certified School Library Media Specialist, and become proficient in the use of all types of technology and media available at Salome H. Long Memorial School. Diversity and curiosity will be nurtured in a comfortable, judgement-free environment. Most importantly, students will be encouraged to become lifelong learners and take these important skills with them into college, careers, and beyond.
