Students are welcome to use the library individually before and after school and during the school day during study halls, free periods or lunch. Class instruction or projects may occasionally take precedence over student usage.
Our mission is to provide instruction, resources, and support to students and faculty so that they may obtain the information they need for school assignments, reading for pleasure, and personal enrichment. We achieve this by providing print, multimedia, and online resources, instruction, equipment, technological support and training in a welcoming and organized environment.
