Four of the five computers in the library are solely designated for students' access to the Accelerated Readers' Program. The library houses a collection of of close to 9100 books as well as over 700 videos. All are available to the school population as reference material for research papers, projects, reading enhancement and accelerated reader's participation.
The library also expands its resources to the non-departmentalized classes. Classes from Pre-kindergarten to fifth grade have a mini-library for reading enrichment purposes. The mini collection contains approximately 100 books and the new series of on level reading books, below level reading books, and above level reading books from the newly acquired Pearson’s Reading Program. New media resources are acquired each year through school funds and private donations.
