Our Web Site's Mission
It is the mission of the Library Media Project to foster the public discourse that is central to our democracy. We encourage understanding of vital issues and disparate cultures through the dissemination of information, the exploration of ideas, and the recounting of stories. We strengthen the diversity of points of view and enrich communities through the exploration of ideas.
The Library Media Project is dedicated to a developing access to information and education through many public, academic and school library media collections. Our augmenting educational teaching and discussion guides help to create greater public access to informational material about our unique, pluralistic American society.
One of our goals as the not for profit Library Media Project is to assist in the development of media collections in public, academic and school libraries. In turn, these diverse media collections create greater public access to informational and educational on a wide range of subjects.
