This model advocates that parents, students, administrators, and fellow educators understand that high levels of student achievement and 21st century success require an exemplary library program and are advocates for Kaiser to be awarded Power Library status. Karen Epps, the Teacher Librarian at Kaiser, develops yearly goals, objectives, and activities that align the school library program with Kaiser School’s Unified Improvement Plan goals. The Library at Kaiser was selected because it is dedicated to systemic change so that information literacy and educational skills can become an integral part of every student’s learning.
