Sadly, our physical space is closed to students at this time.
We hope to welcome you back soon!

In the meantime we are here to support you with electronic resources and Virtual Library Drop In sessions.

You can also borrow books from the SCHS Library. Here's how:

  1. Go to the Alexandria Researcher.

The LLC is a place where students can access the resources they need and use them in a comfortable, inviting environment to support their learning. From the Oasis where students can eat lunch or snacks, to co-operative learning spaces where students can work together with the aid of a whiteboard or smart TV,  to our makerspace featuring ergonomic tables and supplies for completing hands-on projects, the Library Learning Commons has something for everyone. 

If you’re at the school, stop by to see our showstopping circulation desk made from upcycled books by our own students!
