LIBRARY

The CHS Library is open from 7:15 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Students must present a pass to be admitted into the library during class time. No passes are required before/after school or at lunch.

 

GOALS

The goal of the CHS Library is to ensure that students and staff are information literate and become lifelong learners. We hope to accomplish this goal by:

1.   Providing access to materials in both physical and electronic formats.

2.   Providing instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, evaluating, and

      using information and ideas.

3.   Working with other educators to design lessons to teach curriculum standards.

4.   Preparing students for a successful post-secondary experience.
