St. Francis Library

The library serves as the information and resource center of the school. Our mission is to teach students to develop the research and technology skills needed to find, analyze and communicate information effectively. Through books, media, and technology, students are encouraged to become lifelong readers and learners.

As instructional partners, the library staff collaborates with teachers to provide orientation and instruction in library resources, including the library catalog, online databases, and research skills building.

As information specialists, the library staff provides leadership and expertise in selecting, acquiring and managing high-level print and digital resources. High interest young adult fiction and teen-friendly periodicals offer student enrichment.               

Open throughout the school day, the library provides an engaging environment for individual and group work with conference rooms for faculty and peer tutoring, a library media classroom, a cozy area for pleasure reading, walls filled with student art, and school themed displays.
