Hackensack Middle School Media Center

  • The goal of the Hackensack Middle School Media Center (HMSMC) program is to guide students as they graduate into competent, critical, and ethical users of information. It is our mission to support the curriculum, diverse learning styles of students, district goals, staff needs,  and to prepare life-long learners who are information literate citizens able to determine their own information needs, recognize relevant resources, solve problems and effectively communicate the results of their research. As the hub of intellectual activity in the school, the HMSMC supports students' curricular, informational and recreational needs, provides instruction so that students learn to identify, locate, evaluate, and use information in a variety of formats, and ensures that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information by cultivating positive attitudes towards reading for pleasure and purpose, promoting life-long use of libraries and technology to help students and staff stay competitive in our rapidly changing world.
