Library Services

In managing our libraries, we strive to make sure that our students have all the resources they need in order to be academically successful and intellectually stimulated.

We take our mission and vision very seriously, and work continuously to bring them to fruition for our students.  

Our Mission


MNPS libraries develop students that are critical thinkers and thoughtful users of information through teaching, collaboration, and a rich collection of resources.

Our Vision


Metro Nashville Public School libraries will be diverse, student-centered learning hubs that promote teacher and student success through collaboration, inquiry, and literacy across all disciplines.

The Limitless Libraries Program

MNPS school libraries has a nationally recognized collaborative partnership with Nashville Public Library called Limitless Libraries. This partnership is building the next generation of public library users and the services are right at their fingertips, their school library. The program, which began in 2009, serves all MNPS students, teachers and staff. Limitless Libraries allows MNPS students access to the Nashville Public Library collection and those items are delivered directly to students in their building. It allows MNPS access to over a million more items.

Limitless Libraries also provides supplemental funding to our school libraries for books, DVD’s, databases and Playaways. Regardless of what school students attend, they have access to a high quality school librarian and collection. Thanks to our partnership with Limitless Libraries, MNPS students have access to unparalleled amounts of high quality materials and resources to support their learning.
