Library Announcements
Please remember to turn in library books weekly.
Students that have books out from last year, must return books before they can check out new books. Students who have come from TUSD schools may return books to our library and we can return them to the correct school.  Schools, even those that are not TUSD schools do inform us of overdue books. Those students will not be able to check out new books until their overdue books are turned in. Thank you for your help.

Volunteers Needed
Our library could use someone to help take care of it. If you would like to volunteer please call 584-7200. We need people to help shelve books, straighten up shelves, and do general library housekeeping. Any help would greatly be appreciated by students and teachers. Contact [email protected] if you can help out.

Remember that when you look for information on the Internet, the information might not be totally up-to-date. It might not be as accurate as the information you get from encyclopedias and books from good publishers (where lots of people check the information before the book goes into print). Remember also that free information is often paid for with advertisements – but that doesn’t mean you have to buy the stuff!
