Library Mission

Each library in the Bartlett City School system supports the instructional program of its school by providing materials to reinforce, enrich and extend classroom-learning experiences. The librarian functions as a cooperative member of the teaching staff, a consultant on the use of materials and a teacher of those library skills, which help students develop competency in the independent use of resources.

The library seeks to ensure that our students acquire the necessary literacy, technology, and media skills they will need to become productive learners and lead successful meaningful lives in the 21st century.

BCS utilizes Follett Destiny® Library to keep a thorough, real-time track of our library's inventory and media assets while giving students and families a fun means of discovery and reading. Use the links below to access the library catalogs for each of our eleven schools.
