The mission of the Seguin ISD Library Media Center Program is to ensure that students and staff become responsible and successful users of information; that students become lifetime readers; and that school library media specialists become a part of the instructional team which designs, implements and evaluates instruction.

The mission will be accomplished by achieving the following goals:
