What can the Library do for You?

Being a good reader is key to all of your classes—yes, even math! Visiting and using our library will help you as you pursue academic research needed to complete the homework or assignments given by your teachers during class. Additionally, you may want to spend some of free time choosing an eBook, book, or magazine to read.

As you learn to use the library’s resources you will find that books, reference materials and online databases are excellent sources of information. You will learn to use skills, resources and tools to:

  • Inquire, think critically and gain knowledge
  • Draw conclusions, make informed decisions and apply knowledge
  • Share knowledge and participate ethically and productively
  • Pursue personal growth.

Our Staff is here to help you find the resources or teach the skills necessary to help you become a successful student. If you need help, just ask!
