Lunch Bunch

Library Use

The library is being used as a testing site for the 8th grade SOL test. This means that the library will not be open for students when testing is going on during the day. Students are encouraged to come to the library in the morning prior to their first class. Announcements will be made when the library is closed.

Prince William County Public Library Resources

Students with a library card from the PWC public library have access to nearly 20 additional databases. In order to access these, a valid library card must be entered.

Students who would like a public library card may request one through the school library.
