Classes are scheduled into the library in advance on a flexible schedule. Teachers are encouraged to collaborate with the Library Media Specialist prior to the class reservation to ensure that information literacy skills are integrated with lesson plans and the curriculum. An online Media Calendar is available to view scheduled classes and availability.
Various programs are planned throughout the year to allow students and faculty an opportunity to hear storytellers, poets, authors and other guest speakers in the library.
