Program Description

Our library program strives to develop students’ research skills and encourage reading through the collaboration of our classroom teachers and teacher-librarian. Parents are welcome to visit our library and select books to read with their children. It offers a quiet place for students to study, do homework or read. It houses a large selection of up-to-date informational books, reference materials, vertical files, periodicals and Internet access.

The library is fully automated and the library staff will assist students in searching online using computer terminals. A computer lab is available in the library for students to search on the Internet, search for periodicals through EBSCOhost and use word-processing programs.
