Jafari Library

 

The renovated library opened in the fall of 2013; above it is our new science center. The library is a light and airy space with dedicated rooms for instruction and group studies, comfortable and welcoming areas for reading, and double the shelf space of our former library. It is a hub of student and teacher activity during the school day.

Digital resources, including emerging mobile media, with individual access to power and wireless data, is supported throughout the new facility.Classes visit the library to learn research and information literacy skills. The librarians teach students how to use computer databases, evaluate the reliability of source material, produce bibiliographies, and master other skills.

Students often drop in to ask for assistance with projects and to find books for individual reading. The library also exhibits student art and projects and serves as a meeting place for study groups and student organizations.

The library has over 10,000 items in its catalogued collection to support the school's multi-faceted curriculum. Students also have access to our reference section, periodicals, audio books, and extensive collection of online subscription databases.
