About the library

 About the Library

Located in the Administration Building, the Koerwitz Library serves middle and upper school students and the faculty and staff of Faith Lutheran Middle School and High School. The library supports the philosophy and educational goals of our school to fully nurture the potential of each individual and prepare students to serve as leaders in tomorrow’s world by focusing on three things:

  • Information Literacy
    • Information literacy is the ability to effectively find, evaluate, and use information across all media and disciplines, all vital skills in our complex 21st century information landscape.
  • Diverse Collections
    • The library strives to meet the individual educational, emotional, and recreational needs of students by maintaining a collection full of diverse viewpoints in a variety of formats such as books, ebooks, audiobooks, and online databases.
  • Curricular Support & Collaboration
    • The library strives to support FLMS and FLHS teachers by providing curriculum materials and resources and collaborating across grades and disciplines to enrich lessons with information literacy skills.
