The school library provides a variety of books for reading and reference.  Books may be checked out by the students. If a student loses or severely damages a book, the parents will be responsible for reimbursement.  We also have a parent collection of books containing useful resources and parenting tips. Please feel free to view or checkout materials from our collection.
