Welcome to the Heritage Intermediate School Library

The mission of the Heritage Intermediate School library is to instruct and assist students in the use and acquisition of 21st century skills and to create an environment which fosters the love of reading in students and supports the curriculum by offering a wide variety of literature, digital and information resources.
The Heritage Intermediate School library is committed to collaboration and standards-based instruction within the context of the curriculum. We have adopted the four essential components of the California Model School Library Standards which emphasize:

1. Student Access to Information
2. Student Evaluation of Information
3. Student Use of Information
4. Students integrate information literacy skills into all areas of learning

In addition to these components students will learn how literature is a bridge to a world beyond their own. Through literature students will learn about tolerance, citizenship, and an overall appreciation for diversity and cultures.

The Library is the temple of learning and learning has liberated more people then all the wars in history.
