What is a 21st Century Library?

A 21st Century library aligns with Colorado Academic Standards and fosters the love of reading. 

The library focuses primarily on information literacy (see below), but also covers other 21st Century skills and core curriculum standards. (Yes! Even science, math, and social studies!)

Libraries are no longer simply book warehouses. They are hubs of information and knowledge that stretch beyond the walls of the library into the classroom and into the community.

We are continually building our collection of audio, video and electronic resources that meet the needs of the entire Wolford community. Look at our ebooks and electronic resources.
