The school library media center is the heart of the school’s information access network. It provides students and staff with resources which enhance curriculum, promote literacy, and assist students in developing critical thinking skills within and beyond the library walls. In the spirit of inquiry, students use our library information center to read for pleasure, to conduct research and to continue their quest as life-long learners.

The Matthew Turner Library welcomes students, staff, and parents to use its print resources. Students come to the library once a week for formal lessons and borrowing but are welcome during open times to browse, borrow, read, and conduct research. The library instructional program supports literacy in a variety of ways and promotes a rich multi-leveled resource collection that is current and entertaining. Students use print resources to complete research assignments. Parent volunteers are essential partners who help run the library program and raise funds for library materials. Please contact the Matthew Turner librarian(link sends e-mail) if you would like to become a part of this dedicated team.
