A staple for all schools is the school library. Our school is no different. Whether you’re looking to check out a book or find fulfilling activities, our library will have something for you!

Our library always goes above and beyond for our students. In addition to the vast selection of books and genres, the library offers countless opportunities for students to express their creativity, find comfort and use resources needed for school work.

To keep the young minds of our school enriched, every week a new craft is available for students to participate in. Ranging from coloring sheets to pom-pom making, the “crafty” section of the library is full of surprises. On a monthly basis, you’ll notice changes throughout the library: Every month the library changes its theme, currently celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month on top of the book cases different hispanic authors and books are on display. To keep the competitiveness alive seasonally, contests are created, and all students can submit an entry to win a prize! On the third Thursday of every month, open mic poetry is available for all students who are interested in poetry. Whether you want to come to share your own poetry or come to relax and listen, it is up to you! The library’s Book Club meets in the library on the fourth Friday of each month. While no reading is strictly required, a genre is recommended for members to read and discuss in their monthly meetings.

Despite all these changes, the library has its classic constants. Every day of the week the library is open to a total of 45 students during Academic Enrichment. This system is maintained through an effective online pass system where students sign up for a pass through Schoology and collect the pass after first or second block. During this time, students can work on puzzles and games which are always spread out on the tables in the front of the library or sit on the comfortable furniture. The would you rather polls is a popular activity for students. With prompt questions changing up to twice a week, there’s always a new question to share your opinion on.

With fresh activities and quiet safe spaces, our library is prepared to handle any student’s needs.
