Does the school have a library? How large is it? How updated are the books? Can students borrow books to read at home?

Yes! The elementary library was great. Very large and extensive collection of books. Large nonfiction, picture books, and chapter book areas. Section with Arabic books and a wall of books in different languages (could range from just a few in a language to several rows in Korean). Kids starting in 1st grade could go to the library during lunch recess if they wanted. Very friendly library. Kids could bring books home each week and they also had a DVD and Playaway (audio book) collection for check out. They get new books regularly in the library and cull books yearly for an end of year book sale. The HS/MS combined library also was good sized, but I'm not sure much else. - Feb 2020

Yes. The library is great! It is quite large with new books added frequently. It is encouraged to check out books weekly, and the library is even open for weekend hours. - Feb 2017

Elementary has it's own library with adequate reference, fiction and great non-fiction selections, plus videos and computer access. High school also has great selections. Non-fiction is good, but kids do rely a bit more on internet sources than elementary kids do. Parents are also allowed access and cards to check out books, which is great. - Jun 2010
