CMP Library Network

Library-related news across the network!

About the Library Network

The collective mission of the CMP Library Network shall be to:

  • Ensure that students have access to library materials that promote, further, and complement their academic studies and personal curiosities;
  • Take an active role in educating students about digital citizenship, information literacy, and how to thrive in an increasingly technologically-driven world;
  • Advocate for the inclusion and promotion of coding and computer science into the network curriculum; and
  • Foster a climate and culture of inventiveness and discovery by encouraging and supporting Club Montessori- and library-based maker programs and initiatives.

Each of the libraries is supported by Central Administration, who shall assist each campus library by:

  • Managing and administering the library automation software, as well as providing tech support for campus-level staff and volunteers;
  • Advising campus and senior administrators on topics that the library has a vested interest or role in;
  • Updating and maintaining network-wide library manuals and best practices; and
  • Assisting in the cataloging of materials to maintain the integrity of each campus' collection.
