Welcome to the Viking Library!
In support of the Omaha Public School mission, the Crestridge Library’s mission is to help each student excel and achieve maximum potential by creating a 21st century learning environment, fostering a love of reading, and promoting the effective use of information and communications technology.
Through collaboration, the library Mrs. Hultman partners with the educators and support staff to empower students in becoming lifelong learners, responsible citizens, and industrious problem solvers.
The school library supports and enriches the curriculum and the stated objectives of the Omaha Public School district by providing current materials and technologies to meet the information needs of the students and teachers. Instruction is provided in locating, evaluating, and using information. The librarians collection should be well-rounded and unbiased in presenting information on a variety of current and historical issues. Mrs. Hultman promotes the value of the library as an accessible source of information for lifelong learning and stimulates interest in reading for pleasure.
All objectives of the library resource curriculum are student based and support the Omaha Public School Library Science Mission Statement as well as their philosophy and goals. The objectives that are detailed within the library curriculum stem directly from the instructional pacing guidelines which support the classroom and the library skills.
