Our library proudly houses over 12,000 items! We have wonderful picture books, award-winning and current fiction, non-fiction, "everyone non-fiction," as well as magazines available to check out! Most items check out for 2 weeks. While we do not charge fines for overdue items, students may not check out new items if they have overdue materials on their account. Library etiquette and book care are taught or reviewed at the start of each school year. Students are required to pay for lost or damaged items from the library.
