Media Center Services

The media center provides students and staff with a wide range of information resources to complement the school's curriculum.  Computers and tablets give access to the Internet and our high quality subscription databases, which allow access to thousands of magazine, newspaper, and other scholarly articles.  The print collection continues to be updated, and contains over 22,000 fiction and non-fiction volumes for reading and research.  More than 35 print subscriptions to magazines and 3 newspapers are available.  There are 10 Mac computers, 2 printers and a charging station (bring your own charger) available for student and staff use.  Additionally there is a Xerox machine available free-of-charge (within a reasonable amount of copies).  We are happy to offer students a place to work quietly and welcome your visit!
