Almost 21,000 books, periodicals and media products support the basis of an educational partnership with school principals, teachers, staff, students, parents and the Library staff.  Our collaboration ensures that the Library contributes fully to the educational process and assists in the attainment of educational outcomes.

  • interactive learning activities

Some of our online databases, including our Library's union catalog can be accessed on and off campus by teachers, students, parents and staff. Additionally, we are part of the State Library Consortium an participate in the statewide Inter Library Loam Program.

All visual media is accessible with captions, English subtitles, or American Sign Language (ASL). The LRC houses more than 400 captioned DVDs on subjects as diverse as science, history, math, sports, fine art, job skills, computers and language arts.

In addition to supporting the curriculum and working to meet the needs of a diverse school community, the Librarian and LRC staff provides leadership, instruction and consulting in the use of instructional resources and information technology.
