Library Curriculum

The goal of the Villa library program is to develop students who value learning and have the skills, strategies, and processes to be independent users of information.  The library curriculum provides learning opportunities for students to develop skills in the following areas:


Information Literacy and the Research Process

Students practice information literacy skills that enable them to gain meaning from information.  See “Steps in the Research Process”.


Literature Appreciation and Reading for Meaning

Students develop skills and strategies to understand the message of a story and/or information.


Library Responsibilities

Students develop skills and strategies to help them better use the resources of the library effectively.
