Library Curriculum and Standards

If you haven't been inside a school library media center lately, you might be surprised at just how much has changed since you were in elementary school! Technology rules, and the media center is the hub of technology at the school!

The library media curriculum in the Portsmouth School Department, as in all content areas, follows a strict set of standards. Our curriculum is based on the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) Standards and incorporates the Massachusetts Technology Literacy Standards and Expectations.
