    Please visit this site and take time to explore the resources available through the school library. The entire World Book Encyclopedia and other World Book reference sources may be accessed from your home computer. You will also find the Gale Database which provides a digital reference collection, a searchable periodical database, and other topic specific resources. Students have been given the passwords for these resources. You can contact the librarian if you need more information.

    Students are free to visit the library in the morning and at lunchtime. Teachers also issue passes to students during class time so they may check out books and work on assignments or projects. Our media center provides a computer lab, comfortable reading areas and access to a varied book collection and current magazines.

    The Library Community Service Club provides an opportunity for students to learn about the operation and organization of a library by participating in the day to day duties which are necessary to serve patrons. Students are able to earn community service hours when they work in the library in the morning, at lunch or after school. Students should see Ms. Barrios for more information.
