Mission Statement


The library media program at Bruce Guadalupe is based on the concept of free access to information that reflects the cultural diversity and the pluralistic nature of a global society. 


This free access is available to all students and staff. In support of this concept, the program seeks to foster inquiry and learning by enhancing the instructional program through information literacy.  


The ability to locate, evaluate, and apply information is necessary in order to be a productive citizen in our complex society. 

The library media center is the gateway to the array of information resources available.  

The library media program is committed to the responsibility for ensuring that all students will become discerning information consumers and thereby perpetuate the goal of lifelong learning for every student.

Building a Community of Readers @ Your BG Libraries



Students are motivated and independent learners. The library is a powerful intellectual and social space where students and teachers gather ideas, exchange points of view, and learn together. The library program supports a culture of literacy throughout the school. The library fosters a professional learning community.

Author Visit

Kate Hannigan

February 2016

In February, author Kate Hannigan visited the 2nd - 3rd grade After-School Daycare students. Kate has written The Cupcake Cousins & The Detective's Assistant. The highlight of the visit was the unrolling of Kate's rejection letters. The kids could NOT believe that Scholastic rejected her books! Kate signed Luna's personal copy of The Cupcake Cousins! Thank you to University School of Milwaukee Lower School librarian, Judy Clegg, for giving us this opportunity.
