Our School Library:
School libraries promote literacy skills needed for students to become lifelong learners. School library programs support curriculum with print and online resources and, in this way, play an important role for both teachers and students in assisting them in their research and knowledge.

All materials leaving the library must be signed out. Students may borrow material (fiction/nonfiction) from the library for a three week period. It is very IMPORTANT to return materials borrowed on time, so that others may access to the materials.
The library presently has 5 desktops, an assortment of laptops/Chromebooks, and a printer for student use.
Respect the rights of others. Keep the library quiet. The library is an ideal place for studying, reading or relaxing.
- Non-Fiction – The main collection is in the stacks. It is organized according to the Dewey Decimal System. To locate a book on the shelves, look at the call number on the spine of the book.
