Welcome to the homepage for the DeFranco Elementary Library.
"The size of a school library's staff and collection is the best single predictor of student academic achievement, outweighing school spending in general, the income and education of the parents, and the teacher-pupil ratio.”
Lance, Keith Curry. The Impact of School Library Media Centers on Academic Achievement
Mission Statement: To ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. (from Information Power)
