CHECK-IT OUT! Whether you are looking for an exciting adventure, a thrilling mystery, the latest scientific invention, or a copy of your favorite magazine, the library media center has something for you.  The library media program is designed to teach students how to find, evaulate, and use information as well as promote the love of reading.  We have over 14,000 books, 20 periodical subscriptions, and access to the Internet. The library media center is more than a place to read- it is a place of discovery and exploration.

When Jacob discovers clues to a mystery that spans different worlds and times, he finds a magical place known as Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. But the mystery and danger deepen as he gets to know the residents and learns about their special powers... and their powerful enemies. Ultimately, Jacob discovers that only his own special "peculiarity" can save his new friends.
