San Domenico School Library Program
From the Library Strategic Plan
The primary goals of the San Domenico school library program are, 1) to support the school’s curriculum with current resources that students find useful and of interest, 2) develop student’s appreciation for literature and support their literacy development, and 3) teach the necessary information literacy and technology skills that help students become independent, lifelong learners.
Family Library Accounts & Trainings
The San Domenico Library cordially invites you to experience all the resources our library has to offer by opening a Family Library Account. With that account you may borrow books and other library resources either for your children or for yourselves. Make visiting the library with your child a weekly excursion! We will also be glad to show you how to use our online catalog and information databases found on the Library homepage.
If you would like to schedule an individual or group training to learn how to better help your student in the research process or to enhance your own online searching skills, please contact me at email@example.com to set up a tutorial time.
