Information Agencies: Mission Statement

Conway High East Media Center

Faulkner County Library

“The Conway High School East Library Media Center is to establish a partnership between students, teachers, parents, and the community to ensure that patrons can effectively use ideas and information, as well as select, access, and evaluate said information to enhance the development of skills for lifelong learning while supporting the philosophy, aims, and objectives of Conway High School East.

  • “The Faulkner County Library aims to guide people to the information they seek, regardless of platform, (audio/visual/text/electronic) and give them as many resources as possible so that they can gain access to something they didn’t have access to before.” (T. Nash, personal conversation, September 23, 2011)
