The mission of the school library media program is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. The school library media specialist (SLMS) empowers students to be:

• critical thinkers, 
• enthusiastic readers,
• skillful researchers, and
• ethical users of information.

Though our library is curated with middle school readers in mind, some titles may include some mature content.  For this reason, I always encourage families to be familiar with the books their children are reading.

Thank you,
Mrs. Longo

Please come to the library before school, starting at 7:45, and during homeroom if your Chromebook is not working to receive a loaner Chromebook for the day.  If you encounter a Chromebook issue during the school day, please submit a student ticket and come to the library the following morning to receive a loaner.  Also, you may come to the library the first time you have forgotten your Chromebook at home to borrow a loaner.  If you forget your Chromebook at home a second time, please go to the main office and call a parent or guardian to bring it into school for you.  
Lastly, you may come to the library in the morning to drop library books off, but will have to wait until first period to check them out.  




If you are a current 6th grader who has library books from your elementary school, please give them to me and I will send them back.

If you are a current 7th or 8th grader who borrowed TE library books over the summer, please return them as soon as possible. 

                                                         Thanks,
                                                                            Mrs. Longo
