Welcome to the Doherty Library & Digital Learning Commons

Welcome, students and families, to the Library & Digital Learning Commons at Doherty Middle School. We are so excited to welcome you to our space and to share our love of books and reading. In addition to being a well-stocked and well-loved library, we also work with teachers and students on a number of different topics pertaining to digital and information literacy.

While the library collection is not available to browse in person, it is available online in our Follett Destiny Discover library catalog. Students will learn how to browse and place holds as well as access other digital resources. Find your next book!

We're in this together and together we'll make it a great year! Mrs. Caruso
