About Us

WHAT WE DO
By carefully curating fiction books, nonfiction books, and academic research materials, and by providing research and writing instruction, library staff seek to promote reading and advance the academic skills of all students. It is hoped that, with increased information skills, students become increasingly empowered to thrive as independent life-long learners. Beyond this and with respect to technology, library staff provide access to devices and equipment designed for reading, recording, and creating. As an extension of these technology services, in our digital media lab we partner with the IT department and the district's technology integrator in order to offer the tools and instructional support necessary for students and staff to successfully work with digital content. 

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 video editing, audio editing, and traditional computing needs, the room contains a large green screen, video and sound recording equipment, and an iMac for specialized 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 access the library and lab before and after school, and during their study hall.

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