Students of Olney Elementary School will succeed in our media center's collaborative and digital learning environment that supports the school's curriculum and incorporates information literacy skills into daily, cutting-edge research-based instruction and innovative programming. Students will appreciate and interpret literature in its various formats as they develop into lifelong readers.


Students at Olney Elementary School will benefit from the intellectually and culturally open environment in our media center and grow into enthusiastic and confident lifelong learners and researchers who are empowered to be successful global visionaries and critical thinkers.
