The mission of Nutley Public Schools’ Library Media Department is to create and sustain an innovative, challenging, and inviting learning environment that will empower students as active learners and productive citizens. In this environment, students can read for knowledge acquisition and enjoyment, as well as learn and utilize information literacy, technology tools/resources, and 21st-century skills for educational, personal, and recreational purposes.
Our Library Media Specialists recognize the importance for students to acquire 21st-century skills, including critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, and collaboration. These skills are embedded in the curriculum as students engage in interdisciplinary literacy and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) activities that are hands-on, meaningful, and authentic to real-life contexts beyond the library.
