  • 1. What We Believe:Philosophy ofThe Unquiet Relationships are at the core of successful libraries, and like a garden, they need constant care and nurturing. By framing libraries as sites of participatory culture and playful learning, the library is betterLibrary positioned to empower people in our learning community to participate in and/or create learning communities around information literacy and content area standards as well as the passions, wonderings, and interests of students and faculty. We collaborate with teachers and students to establish and nurture a learning-centric library program grounded in practices of participation that embrace and encourage formal and informal communities of learning. The learning experiences and contributions of our learning community continually inform the library’s understanding of the community and consequently impact the library’s strategies for innovation which are then integrated into our annual program design and evaluation plan. Through these collaborative partnerships, an organic and compelling narrative of the library experience is communally constructed by students and teachers and shared with a global audience. We invite you to participate and contribute to the experience we call “library.” Buffy J. Hamilton, 2012
