Our mission is to help all CHS learners become successful, ethical users of information, life-long readers, and college and career ready individuals. We encourage digital ethics and citizenship by promoting the use of copyright-friendly media, by providing instruction on proper attribution of digital and print media, and by providing opportunities for practice with website evaluation, all while encouraging a culture of creativity, sharing, and critical thinking.

We also provide learners, via their iPads, access to downloadable eBooks, database information through MackinVia, audio books through Catalist Digital, and print resources through Destiny.

We are open 7:30 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Thursday and from 7:30 am 4:00 pm on Friday. Come by or email us for more information. We're always happy to assist.
