Welcome to your
Doherty middle school Library
Welcome students and families to your Library at Doherty Middle School. Please feel comfortable using this space and sharing your love of books and reading or sharing your hesitation. We are here to help and support any way we can. Do you have any recommendations? In addition to continuously adding fresh and relevant titles reflecting our students and their interests, we also work with teachers and students on a number of different topics pertaining to curriculum, as well as digital and information literacy.
Elyse Caruso, Librarian
Diverse books are the windows, mirrors, and sliding glass doors that allow readers to see themselves, see others, and enter their world. (Paraphrased from Rudine Sims Bishop]
