|The Right Book Can Lift the Veil of Ignorance
"To read is to fly: it is to soar to a point of vantage which gives a view over wide terrains of history, human variety, ideas, shared experience, and the fruits of many inquiries."
"Give yourself unto reading. The man who never reads will never be read; he who never quotes will never be quoted. He who will not use the thoughts of other men's brains proves that he has no brains of his own. You need to read."
Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!!!!
Our school library strives to be a learning lab that provides information services, educational programs, and wholesome books to our community of students, parents, and faculty. Our goal is to develop the skills needed to encourage a lifelong love of reading and self reliant learners. Over the school year, we teach students library and research skills, and share wonderful books!
