Yes. It's great! It's a beautiful library with many books and not too many bells and whistles. - Nov 2018

Yes! There aren't many bells and whistles in the library, and honestly, I'm OK with that. There are plenty of books and computers for all. - Feb 2018

Wonderful library building. - Apr 2017

Yes, there is a library. The elementary library has a very small collection. Yes, students can borrow books to read at home, but the library has had some issues with being inaccessible to students, with my children having been turned away during the school day on several occasions.

To add to that, students from third grade up do not visit the library with their class on a regular basis, decreasing their exposure tremendously. Furthermore, books in the middle/ high school section were not made available to the younger elementary school kids, which limited strong readers in the lower grades in their choices.

Due to the lack of a clear protocol for returning books, multiple books that we had returned were later deemed "lost" and we ended up paying for books which later turned up in the collection. - Aug 2016

Library is minimal. - Dec 2015

Yes, decent. - Sep 2015

A-: The new "Learning Commons" is nice, but it is definitely a change from traditional libraries in that there are not as many books, but there is a nice environment nonetheless. - Aug 2015

There is a brand new "learning commons" that looks impressive from the pictures I've seen. - Jan 2015
