Edgewood HS Students

Library

The heart of a school is in its library, and that’s no exception at EHS. Students may use the Library at any time during their unscheduled mods. We assign freshmen to study halls during free mods; they need to request a “green slip” from a course teacher to go to the Library. 

Library Philosophy

The Library is integral to the school, supporting the educational program and ensuring students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. The Library provides print and non-print resources and subscribes to the Library Bill of Rights, the Statement on Intellectual Freedom, and to Information Power, the nationally-accepted standard for library programs.

Library Goals

  1. Meet informational needs of the school based on knowledge of the curriculum and interests of students, faculty, and staff.
  2. Stimulate and support intellectual and social growth, literary appreciation, aesthetic values, and ethical standards.
  3. Provide a balanced collection reflecting diversity in points of view and treatment of controversial issues.
  4. Meet criteria of accuracy, timeliness, variety of format, and appropriateness to user.
