The library is not only a repository for books, but also a computer lab available for student use during school hours. If students need to use a computer, they must arrange a time with library staff if it is not during their regularly scheduled class time.
Use Destiny Quest to search for books in the Suburban Park library, including eBooks! Use the Follett Shelf to access the eBooks, using your student ID.
