About our Library

The library serves both elementary and high school students, faculty and staff. Elementary students visit the library with their teacher on a weekly basis to borrow books. High school students visit the library independently to research, study and select reading material. The librarian is always available to assist and answer any questions. There are also parent volunteers who are there on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There is a sizeable French-language collection to support the Immersion program.
