ZMHS Information Center
Welcome to the Zama American Middle-High School Information Center Homepage
The role of the DoDEA School Library Information Center program is to support the DoDEA mission of preparing military children for success in a global environment. This mission is achieved by:
• Providing access to print and non-print resource materials that are aligned to the DoDEA curriculum;
• Facilitating library services and literacy programming that fosters a love of reading;
• Defining the essential information literacy skills required for student achievement in the 21st century; and
• Collaborating with educators to design learning strategies and deliver instruction that meets the needs of the military child.

2. Draw conclusions, make informed decisions, apply knowledge to new situations, and create new knowledge
3. Share their knowledge and understandings with others and participate ethically and productively as members of our democratic society

Failure to do so can result in suspension of privileges. Lost or missing book policy requires hardback replacements of the same book. Student academic records cannot be cleared if materials are owed in the library.
