The School Library Media Program is essential to student learning and achievement and integral to the entire educational process, providing all students and staff members with equitable and timely access to ideas and information through a collaborative integrated instructional program which empowers students and staff to be effective users of ideas and information, to evolve as life-long learners, and to choose to read for pleasure. Our mission is carried out by providing an intellectually free and welcoming environment that is physically attractive, as well as well-maintained and run by highly qualified staff. Ideally, when students leave Charles County Public Schools, the Library Media Program will have aided them in becoming active and creative locators and users of information to solve problems, to formulate ideas, and to satisfy their own curiosities.
A Long Walk to Water
A Long Walk to Water begins as two stories, told in alternating sections, about two eleven-year-olds in Sudan, a girl in 2008 and a boy in 1985. The girl, Nya, is fetching water from a pond that is two hours’ walk from her home: she makes two trips to the pond every day. The boy, Salva, becomes one of the "lost boys" of Sudan, refugees who cover the African continent on foot as they search for their families and for a safe place to stay. Enduring every hardship from loneliness to attack by armed rebels to contact with killer lions and crocodiles, Salva is a survivor, and his story goes on to intersect with Nya’s in an astonishing and moving way.
