Our Mission Statement
The mission of the Roosevelt High School library media program is to promote literacy and ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. The school library exists to empower students to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, skillful researchers, and ethical users of information. Our primary purpose is to support the academic and personal development of lifelong learners and enlivened, engaged citizens. In addition, we posit the library as the vital literary arts center of the school.

It’s time to get signed up for summer reading with Multnomah County Library’s summer reading program, and avoid that summer slide. And, wow, the grand prizes are jaw-dropping! https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/e/2PACX-1vT50IIT0ewD7imfWy0nV8w6MY3aQpuwnId9JzVY33D-Ihq4zATVp0rJQbOX7TsQHqtnGgZeHjkZ_M0m/pub?start=false&loop=false&delayms=3000&slide=id.g57473f0d57_0_1027
Literary Arts this year is doing Virtualandia instead of Verselandia. There will be five video lessons on slam, students can submit poems to poets for comment after May 11th, and at the end there will be a virtual event where poets will come together not to compete, but share work. Please rev up your creative juices and join in!
Teens can sign up for two free audiobooks a week through the summer. Great line up! https://bookriot.com/2020/04/28/free-audiobooks-for-teens/?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Riot%20Rundown%20042820&utm_term=BookRiot_TheRiotRundown_DormantSuppress
