The High School Library is a large, open space with both individual and group working areas. Computers are available for student and staff use, and the space is a WiFi zone for additional devices. ASV students have at their disposal university-level research databases as well as the ability to search the online catalog for English and Spanish-language magazines fully indexed by the Library staff. The High School Library book collection is added to every day, with more than a quarter of the current circulating collection having been purchased in the last five years. There is a good balance of English and Spanish language books in the attempt to support all disciplines, and the Library’s acquisition policy aims always to support the research and educational needs of its students and teachers.
In the Elementary Library students have access to a range of English-language books for independent reading, and a growing non-fiction collection to support work being done in classrooms. The space also has a SmartBoard for instructional-based activities for the students.
Hope to see you there.
