A Free Library Card is Your Most Important School Supply

Library resources are available to anyone who has a valid library card. Students can turn to the library for materials, programs, and services that support academic achievement. Our library offers access to important educational resources, like LearningExpress Library, Transparent Language Online, Gale Virtual Reference Library, Salem Press Research Databases, and more.
