EMPOWERING LEARNERS

The libraries of Bedford Public Schools are not just about BOOKS anymore!
They are about EMPOWERING students to be masters of their own learning.

  • Yesterday’s libraries were all about books. Today’s libraries are all about readers.
  • Yesterday’s libraries were all about getting information. Today’s libraries are all about creating and sharing information.
  • Yesterday’s libraries were all about silent individuals. Today’s libraries are all about active groups.
  • Yesterday’s libraries were all about term papers. Today’s libraries are all about multimedia, hands-on, collaborative projects.

Bedford's District Libraries embrace the concepts of today’s library!
