Summer Break

The 2020-2021 School Year has come to an end. It was a year unlike any other. We hope that the School Library was able to serve you as well as possible both in and out of the classroom.

Enjoy some rest and recreation over the summer. We really hope you can find some extra time for reading. Read for fun. Read to learn something you are interested in. Read to laugh. Read to cry. Read to be scared. Read to escape. Read for whatever reason you have.

Over the summer you can continue to visit us online, including access to our ebook collection. We hope that we have fought this pandemic well enough that our full slate of services can return for the 2021-2022 School Year. We will see you again in person in September.

Summer Reading

The Summer Reading Library Cart is making its way around the building. Staff are encouraged to have a look and pick up something for reading over the break!

Come down to the school library for more selections. Students and staff are reminded that we have THOUSANDS of books in the School Library and that we would love to have you take home some books to enjoy for some summer reading.
