K-6 Library Media Center   


The Hoosic Valley Elementary School Library is proud to be designated as an Electronic Doorway Library by the State of New York since April 1, 1999.

"An electronic doorway library uses computer and telecommunications technology, a full range of library resources, and the services of skilled librarians to meet the library and information needs of business, government, education, and people of all ages, backgrounds, interests and abilities extending services into people's homes, workplaces and other locations, going beyond the library's walls to obtain information and resources, facilitating access by people with disabilities, and providing powerful new ways of assembling, evaluating and using information."

(Source: New York State Education Department, Electronic Doorway Libraries: Meeting the information needs of all New Yorkers.  New York: New York State Library, 1999.)


The mission of the library media program is to ensure the students and staff are effective users of ideas and information.

This mission is accomplished:

  • by providing intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats
  • by providing instructions to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas
  • by working with other educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students
