New rules for entering the library - For safety reasons, please use only one entrance for the library, the door closest to Ms. Rafter's room.

Faculty, if you'd like individual students to visit the library, please send them with a note, and a short description of what you'd like them to be working on. Please note that blocks C and D are unavailable because classes are being taught then. If teachers want to meet with me or bring their classes in, please email me at and we can arrange it.
