School Library Mission Statement

The mission of the Kaysville Elementary Library is to provide opportunities for growth and collaboration for students, teachers and community members through reading, research, and literacy focused activities. The goal of all activity in our library is to promote a lifelong love of reading, learning, and effective use of technology to navigate our ever-changing world. As Kaysville Dragons, we will work together to make the library the heart of our school, where all may come to read, learn, and enjoy activities that strengthen ourselves and our school.
