The Library

Use your library – it is here to support the curriculum and your interests

School libraries can empower students by offering access to new experiences and knowledge as well as stimulating the imagination. They can provide the environment for students to learn how to become independent users of information and discerning readers of fiction.

The more you read, The more you know.
The more you know, The smarter you grow.
The smarter you grow, The stronger your voice,
When speaking your mind, Or making a choice.
