The learning center is a warm and inviting environment for the Wellington community complete with age-appropriate areas, small group/study rooms, workspaces conducive to laptop use and informal reading nooks.
The learning center provides more than 35,000 print and non-print volumes, an online catalog, subscription databases, and is open nearly 50 hours a week.
The learning center curriculum focuses on the acquisition of information literacy skills and demonstrating the benefits of lifelong reading. Both formal and informal instruction are offered, as well as one-on-one and small group instruction in the classroom, computer lab, or learning center. Instruction in information literacy is based on national standards established by the American Association of School Librarians.
