Welcome to the Library Media Center
The Library Media Center (LMC) is centrally located between the Middle School and High School wings. It provides a quiet place for research, reading, and small-group work. The Library is open before, during and after school; from 7:30 to 3:30.
The LMC houses over 15,000 items including fiction, non-fiction and reference books, videos, DVDs, CDs, and audio books. Materials can be searched using our web-based Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) which is accessible from any computer on campus.
Students, teachers and administrators have access to a substantial number of electronic resources including encyclopedias, historical and current newspapers, science journals, e-books and more. See the database page and e-book page for a full listing. Access is available from any computer on campus. Home access is password protected.
Twenty-eight desktop computers are available for class and drop-in use. Students have access to two laser printers, one of which is color. Each of the two teaching areas has the capacity to digitally project and there is a TruTouch Board and document camera for class use.
