The library is open before and after school, during class time with a teacher’s pass, and Nutrition Break & Lunch. We encourage our students to visit our  library to study, research, browse, or read.


During the first weeks of school the library will issue students their textbooks. Each book costs from $70 to $260 – we encourage our students to regard their textbooks as they would any expensive items.  If textbooks are lost or returned damaged, parents will need to pay the replacement cost of the book.
