Our Mission 


The Mission of the Urban Discovery Academy Library is to create a school library and media resource center in which students may search information and ideas in a safe and stimulating environment, and to encourage a life-long appreciation and utilization of all forms of information.

The Library aims to:

  • Provide materials that enrich and support the school curriculum.

  • Stimulate an appreciation of literature, and a growth in knowledge, by providing text resources in a number of differing formats.

  • Provide a background of knowledge which enables a student to make intelligent, informed judgments.

  • Provide materials on opposing sides of controversial issues so that students may practice their critical reading and thinking skills and search information in an ethical manner.
