Library Media Center

Mission:

  • Teach the school community the print and digital information literacy and digital citizenship skills to become scholarly, ethical and critical consumers of information.
  • Provide access to the highest quality print and multimedia resources, appropriate technologies and innovative instruction so all students may realize their potential and are confident, ethical, responsible and exemplary in their use of information.
  • Promote school community members' collaboration opportunities, space and materials to design, invent and create their own learning, products and outcomes.
Some information below is suspended during the Coronavirus shutdown.
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, Glad Time, and after school to complete assignments and read.
