Librarian, St. Theresa Middle

Welcome to the Library!


We have libraries at both campuses and believe it is important to introduce students to the library at a young age. Students can get a head start on early reading success if they are given opportunities to use a library. Students who are exposed to print-rich environments are more successful in school, and they can go on to be successful lifelong learners. Enrichment classes (Music, Computer, PE, Spanish, Library, Art, Band and Choir) are offered to students. Different grade levels attend a variety of enrichment classes. Some are offered weekly and some are offered quarterly.

Students interested in becoming more involved with our library and in reading should consider joining our Library Club.
