  • We make recommendations for specific reading materials for each individual.

  • Students will be learning research and computer skills specifically suited to their developmental needs through collaboration and innovative projects,

  • We will be working with classroom teachers to help them find materials especially suited to the individual interests and abilities of your teen.

  • Library lessons and activities will stress digital citizenship, helping your teen make safe and ethical decisions when using the Internet.

  • Teens have access to e-books and audiobooks via our circulation system, Destiny!

  • We offer the library as a  "maker-space" to teens who want to edit a movie, create a podcast, or edit photographs - and the library staff will help them.

  • Special events, including author visits, book and library clubs, and reading contests, are always happening!

  • If you would like to volunteer to help in the library, please let us know. We'd love to have you.

Our staff is committed to making the library your child's favorite place in the school!
