The Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School Library Program empowers students in all grades to be independent learners throughout their lives, ensuring that they are effective, efficient, and ethical users of ideas and information. The library provides a wide range of relevant resources and technologies to satisfy the varied curriculum and the recreational needs of its users.

By promoting a reading culture, we hope to instill in students the habit of lifelong learning. Teaching the tools of information literacy and conveying the importance of an informed citizenry in a free and democratic society, we support students in their exploration of ideas and class research projects. Our staff also collaborates with teachers to design learning strategies to meet the diverse needs of individual students.
