Library Services Overview

The vision of the Library Services Department is to provide knowledge, resources, and skills for all students and educators which advance student learning and results in student achievement. Librarians provide diverse services to the East Baton Rouge Parish Schools including, but not limited to: information literacy instruction, resource management, purchasing, and instructional support services.

Library Services offers technical and professional support to school librarians in a wide variety of ways.

  • Professional development at large in-services, small training sessions, and one-on-one site visits.
  • Technical support for our centrally administrated Destiny Online Catalog the portal to library books, e-books, and research databases.
  • Acquisitions, processing, and cataloging support for school libraries.
  • Procedures, best-practice guides, and how-to sheets to help with common school library situations.
  • Help with inventories and other projects.

Instructional Support
Certified school librarians assist students to develop information literacy skills, provide them with equitable access to books and electronic resources, help raise test scores, and encourage a lifelong love of reading.

School library programs work to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. As teachers, information specialists, and instructional consultants, librarians assist staff, students, and parents learn to use both traditional materials and new technologies.
