All textbooks, library books, and teachers’ editions circulate through the library making it an indispensable resource center for students and staff. The library has a collection of over 18,000 books, numerous magazines and unlimited online resources available on the library computers. The non-fiction collection is designed to support the school curriculum and contains a variety of books specifically selected to provide information that is useful for students’ research projects.
