Library

We support life-long learning by preparing all students to properly evaluate information and use it ethically.

Mission Statement

Through collaboration, the librarians will promote good scholarship by providing instruction to students in navigating all formats of information, recognizing authoritative resources, and properly documenting research.

     YALSA’s “Teen Book Finder” app—download for free on Apple and Android devices “Find the best books and media for teens, as selected by library staff and educators across the United States! The Teen Book Finder, generously funded by a grant from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, offers easy access to the titles honored each year by the Young Adult Library Services Association, a division of the American Library Association. The Teen Book Finder allows users to search for books by title, author, genre, award, or list; create a reading list with the Favorites button; share what you’re reading on Facebook and Twitter; and find a copy of the book in your local library, all from one screen! Not sure where to start? YALSA offers three different book titles as hot picks on the homepage each day.”
