Library Resources

  • Destiny, a searchable database of more than 10,000 titles of fiction and non-fiction books in our state-of-the-art library.
  • Gale Cengage, a database with general articles on varied topics. Includes text, audio, and multimedia, along with digital annotation capabilities. Directly links with teacher and student district Google accounts.
  • ProQuest, our searchable academic article database. (At this point in time, the state has only purchased access for students while physically at school. As a result, students cannot access articles from home on chromebooks. To work around this limitation, students can download pdfs of available articles while at school and save them to their Google Drive to then read at home.)
  • TeachingBooks, a resource that focuses on authors and fiction literature with author interviews and book trailers. Can be used to supplement Core Literature.

Check out the library's book club: KnightLit

Make friends, read and discuss books, and prepare for the district's Battle of the Books competition. We would love to have you join us. Club meetings are on Tuesdays at lunch in the library.
