    The MUHS Learning Center consists of the Library and the Technology Center and serves all members of the  MUHS teaching and learning community. The Learning Center supports the beliefs and core values of MUHS and ACSD, and the mission of International Baccalaureate “to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.”  

    The library provides equitable access to a collection of print and digital resources and services that meet the diverse needs and interests of our community. The library goals align with the action steps in the ACSD Digital Learning Plan and to the six foundations of the American Association of School Library (AASL) Standards Framework for LearnersInquire, Include, Collaborate, Curate, Explore, and Engage.

    The library upholds the American Library Association Code of Ethics and Library Bill of Rights and preserves the values of an informed citizenry, open and equitable access to knowledge, and intellectual diversity.  The function of the library will continue to evolve amidst changing technological and pedagogical conditions in order to help students develop a love and appreciation of reading and literature, ensure freedom of information, prepare information savvy life long learners, and create safe and supportive environments for focused and collaborative learning.
