Our Library Mission:
To empower students to become lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and effective navigators of information and technology. This is supported by:
The library is open Monday - Friday during school hours. Students are welcome to come check out books, use our computers, or create and collaborate when the library is open. Students can come to the library any time during the day with a signed pass from a staff member.
Students may check out up to 10 items at a time. Check out is for 3 weeks, but students may renew items unless there is a hold. Students can also request a hold for a book with the library staff. Although there are no overdue fees, students will be restricted to check out more materials if they have overdue items. Students are asked to see their librarian about lost / damaged books. Refunds are not honored after the school year is over, or if the book has already been replaced.

Tuesday, January 30th at 7pm, don't miss Nic Stone discussing her debut YA novel, Dear Martin.
From the Flyleaf Website:
Raw, captivating, and undeniably real, Nic Stone joins industry giants Jason Reynolds and Walter Dean Myers as she boldly tackles American race relations in this stunning debut.
Justyce McAllister is top of his class and set for the Ivy League—but none of that matters to the police officer who just put him in handcuffs. And despite leaving his rough neighborhood behind, he can’t escape the scorn of his former peers or the ridicule of his new classmates.
Justyce looks to the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for answers. But do they hold up anymore? He starts a journal to Dr. King to find out.
Then comes the day Justyce goes driving with his best friend, Manny, windows rolled down, music turned up—way up, sparking the fury of a white off-duty cop beside them. Words fly. Shots are fired. Justyce and Manny are caught in the crosshairs. In the media fallout, it’s Justyce who is under attack.
