Our mission . . .


At Springfield Township High School Library, our goal is to ensure that learners graduate as competent, critical, and ethical users and producers of ideas and information. It is our mission to prepare lifelong learners; information literate and transliterate citizens able to determine their information needs, recognize relevant and credible information, solve problems and effectively, creatively communicate the results of their inquiry and research, and share their stories. We understand the importance of sharing with audiences beyond our school walls.


We strive to model our school's shared core values: respect, excellence, integrity, and community.

Instruction, formal and informal, provides students with a process transferable across subject areas and from academic to real life. The bulk of the learning is "laboratory style" with students involved in guided, inquiry-driven research using resources in all formats: traditional, new, emerging.

Welcome to our virtual annex!
Our mission at the Springfield Township High School Virtual Library is to translate the mission of the school library for our learning community in school, at home, anywhere. Our website allows us to open our library--its customized instruction and its services--to users 24/7!

We welcome your suggestions,
Dr. Joyce Valenza, Teacher-Librarian
