The librarian is available M-F between 8 am and 3:30 pm.  Students can checkout books between 7:00 am and 5:00 pm with their student id cards M-Th.  The student center is closed after school on Friday and every 3rd Monday for professional development for teachers.  

Teens Read Week!  October 15 through October 19.

We had a very successful Teen Read Week!  We gave away over 100 books to students and teachers!  We also distributed lots of prizes and candy to the lucky people that took a chance on a good book.  Next time I will take more pictures.  Be sure to stop by the student center for a free book or to check out some of the new Halloween themed books.
