The teacher-librarian in the Pittsburgh Public Schools' Library Network will promote collaboration with the faculty and staff to achieve "Excellence for All." Each library will be a safe and welcoming place that includes current materials for both curricular and personal use, that are age-appropriate and support our schools' missions. The teacher-librarians collaborate with faculty to help students learn those skills needed for both lifelong learning and lifelong reading. They strive to make the library the place to develop and practice healthy and responsible habits for research and reading. The staff of Library Services will endeavor to support the teacher-librarians' mission so all of the students in our District are well-served.
