- connect learners with ideas and information, and
- prepare students for life-long learning, informed decision-making, a love of reading, and the use of information technologies.

The Learning4Life implementation plan was created to support states, school systems, and individual schools preparing to implement the Standards for the 21st-Century Learner and Empowering Learners: Guidelines for School Library Programs. The plan will also increase awareness and understanding of the learning standards and program guidelines and create a committed group of stakeholders with a shared voice.
