Welcome to the Padua Franciscan Patricia M. Zane Memorial Library. Our Library has grown through the years from a humble reading room to a vital resource area available to students, classes, teachers, faculty, administration, and staff. The Padua Library strives to provide resources and materials that will enrich, supplement, and support the present curriculum as well as meet the educational, informational, and recreational needs and interests of all individuals.
The Mission & Goal of the Padua Franciscan Patricia M. Zane Memorial Library
The curricular mission of the Padua Library program is to promote the intellectual freedom of the students it serves by providing the resources and information needed as students acquire and explore the critical thinking and problem solving skills necessary to achieve academic excellence and to become active, effective, responsible, and ethical users of information both within and beyond the walls of Padua Franciscan High School. Beyond its curricular vision, the Padua Library strives to promote a lifelong enjoyment of reading and learning and an understanding of information literacy.
