About Us

THE LIBRARY
The library is a space for accessing information, reading, and completing collaborative and individual assignments. Designed to be an organized, comfortable, and productive learning environment, and designed to meet the academic and recreational information needs of all students, the library maintains a large collection of print and digital books, subscribes to several research databases, and provides access to technology like Chromebooks, iPads, and e-readers.

THE DIGITAL MEDIA & COMPUTER LAB
The lab is a space for computer work and digital content creation. Besides eighteen Windows-based desktops designed to handle photo editing and traditional computing needs, the room contains a large green screen, video and sound recording equipment, and an iMac for audio production. Other equipment will also be found within the room, especially on its center island which serves as a technology deconstruction station and general technology work space. 

USING THE LIBRARY AND LAB
Classroom teachers may reserve the rooms by using the reservation calendar. Students may sign up for the library and lab by visiting the library each day before their study hall begins.

WHAT WE TRY TO DO

By trying to carefully curate fiction books, nonfiction books, and academic research materials, and by offering individual and classroom instruction, library staff seek to promote reading and advance the research and writing skills of all students. It is hoped that, with increased information literacy, students become increasingly empowered to become independent life-long learners. Regarding the digital media lab, with help from the IT department and the district technology integrator, we strive to provide the tools and instructional support necessary for students and staff to successfully create and work with digital content. 

LIBRARY STATISTICS
The library maintains monthly and yearly statistics for class and student visits, book circulation, equipment use, and database searching.
