Mission: Teach students print and digital information literacy skills to become scholarly, ethical, and critical consumers of information, provide access to the highest quality print and multimedia resources, appropriate technologies, and exemplary instruction so all students may realize their potential.
Hours: We are open 7:00am - 2:40pm or as late as 4pm or 5pm if the library media specialists can stay late. Check with us!
Check out policy: Students and staff may check out five items for two weeks and renew check-outs as needed.
Visits to the Library during class time: The Library is an academic space with classes visiting all periods of the day, therefore unaccompanied students may come before school, during lunches, Flex Time, and after school to complete assignments and read.
