Items Available for Check-out
The library has books, ebooks, DVDs, and digital audiobooks available for checkout. Board games and Makerspace equipment can be checked out for in-library use.
Library Assistants gain valuable work experience while helping to keep the library running smoothly. They are also the first to check out new books and Makerspace tools. Student Assistants work at the circulation desk and complete odd jobs around the library. If you are interested, please contact your librarian.
Our library is open Monday - Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Clubs & Organizations can reserve library space by request before and after school, as well as during TASSEL. Please email Mr. Stephenson to confirm a time.
