Five computer workstations are available to access the library catalog and Internet Access is available over the network. The library also has an Interactive Smart TV.

Library skills are taught sequentially by the librarian and integrated into the curriculum through collaboration with the classroom teacher. Students are free to come to the library outside their regularly scheduled period before school, and anytime during the day with a Library Pass.

Book Logs are available in the library or online at “Library Wall of Fame” Book Log.
