The Library media center provides access to a variety of resources including books, magazines, newspapers, online databases, computer programs, audiovisual materials and much more. These resources are made available to support student learning and to ensure students have many experiences which influence their development as information technology literate citizens. Two full-time librarians are available to assist students with selecting the materials they need to best answer their questions and to guide them in selecting the book that best suits their individual reading preferences.
