Rashkis Library

Welcome to the 
Rashkis 
Media Center!

"Information literacy - the ability to find and use information - is the keystone of lifelong learning. Creating a foundation for lifelong learning is at the heart of the school library media program."

The American Association of School Librarians


The mission of the Rashkis Elementary media program is to provide students and staff equitable access to a diverse set of ideas and information in a variety of formats ensuring they are effective, efficient, and ethical uses of this information. We operate a flexible schedule and promote open access to resources. Students come throughout the day to checkout and return books, research, and work on class assignments. In addition, Mrs. Leggette collaborates with classroom teachers to plan lessons that are relevant to classroom content and promote authentic application of concepts, such as research, reading skills, digital citizenship, and information literacy.
