Welcome to the Billingsley School Library.  The primary objective of our media center is to implement, enrich, and support the educational program of the school.  We believe the purpose of education is to help all students acquire the skills, understanding, and attitudes that will promote sound character, responsible citizenship, intellectual proficiency, and personal fulfillment in our ever-changing society.
