Read and SOAR to New Heights!!!
Welcome to the 2021-2022 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!
