Our Library Mission

The mission of the library media program is to ensure that the Mount Anthony Union School District students, faculty, administrators, staff, and community are effective users of ideas and information.
The library staff is here to assist you in research or in choosing materials for recreational reading. Take advantage of the large collection of resources which have been selected with your needs in mind. Popular and new books are always on display. A diverse collection of over 16,000 books to support the curriculum and for pleasure reading is housed in the library. Follett Shelf, a collection of e-books is only a click away. The Vermont collection showcases books by Vermont authors, about Vermont and covers fiction, poetry, science, local history and notable Vermonters. Our library subscriptions, numbering close to 60 titles, range from weekly news magazines, literary journals, standards such as National Geographic and Smithsonian to magazines with teen appeal such as Dirt Bike, ESPN, Outdoor Life and Servo.

An impressive audiovisual collection is available as a support for the curriculum as well as some books on tape. A computer lab is housed on the upper floor of the library with 18 computers affording access to Microsoft applications, Photoshop and Internet access. Classes meet in this space to work on research, and to create brochures and Power Point projects. An additional 10 computers are available on the first floor for independent student use.

The library is open from 7:00 to 3:15 and bustles with activity from classroom use, meetings, tutors working with students to individual students independently using the resources.
