TEXT BOOKS & LIBRARY MATERIALS ARE DUE!
All texts and library books are due back at the end of first semester and during the last two weeks of June. All student accounts must be cleared twice yearly. Classroom reminders, PA announcements, notices home and reminder emails are issued to help you remember! Thanks for helping with this important task.

Welcome to the John Barsby Library Learning Commons, a friendly and open environment to further your success! It's a space useful in many ways: a place to gather information, a place to study, use a computer, meet friends, play a board game or a place to simply read a good book.
If you have any questions or concerns of course Mrs.Vosshans will be there to assist you.
Remember "Google can bring you back 100,000 answers, but a librarian can bring you back the right one."
