Students are welcome to come to the library during various recesses, during their classroom visits, and after school.
The library contains a wide selection of books, magazines, reference materials, as well as "Reading Counts" and search computers. In order to make the library a pleasant and productive place for everyone, there are three major library rules we use:
- Be considerate of other people in the library. That means using a quiet voice and not distracting others.
- Take care of materials and equipment.
- Return items on time and in good condition.
