By The Numbers: A Look At Our Stats

Libraries are important, common spaces in our schools. Every day, we serve classes, groups, individual students, and teachers. We pull resources, share information, and even teach some library and research skills. What do you need? Let us know! We Can Help!

We would love to see you, your students, your classes in the library...TODAY!!

The library is a GREAT place to meet, for ALL classes, activities, and projects, even if you are just looking for a change of scenery! Whether you're working on a test, project, assignment, or need to check out a book, the library is the place to go!

What are the benefits of having your class meet in the library?

  • Meeting in a literacy-rich environment!
  • LOTS of resources at your fingertips, including books, eBooks, & research databases!
  • A second adult to help with instruction!
  • Tables for collaboration and group work!
  • Students can take care of book business!
  • SPACE to work!
  • SPACE to spread out!
  • Change of scenery!

Reserve time in your campus library today!
