The VGMS Library

Welcome to the VGMS Library Page and to our program of Information Literacy.  We believe that every student needs to have the skills necessary to navigate in today's information rich society.  Determining information needs, recognizing and selecting appropriate resources - whether print or online and managing the information are fundamental skills needed for successful academic research.

Program Description

Valley Gardens Middle School Library aims at assisting students and staff to develop resource based learning skills. The library program implements the resource-based learning model to support and enrich the school's educational goals and objectives. We have revamped many aspects of the library to make it inviting and exciting for students to visit and utilize. We have dramatically increased our circulation in all areas to reflect a strong middle years component. Feel free to drop by and ask for assistance at any time.
