Our students love reading!

Merging traditional, inquiry-based, and "maker" experiences, the Armstrong Library invites students, staff, and parents to explore, design, and express.  It is the goal of the library program to develop and encourage a love of questioning, reading, making, and communicating for all students. This goal guides students to become critical thinkers who problem solve and demonstrate growth in Portrait of a Graduate skills.
