Welcome

Our library is filled with over 8,000 Accelerated Reader Books for your child to read and enjoy. We work really hard to buy new books often, keeping the students' interests in mind. Please ask your child to show you what they are reading, read to them, read with them, and let them see you read. You are their most important influence and teacher!

**We also have over 3,000 interactive e-books available through Capstone Digital. Visit this library by following the link found in the links section of the library webpage or download the APP (Capstone Interactive-not available on iPhones).
