The Robert W. Cranston Library serves over 1900 students and 100 teachers. We moved into our facility in the fall of 1994. The 12,000 square foot library media center is comprised of a career center, a library technology classroom, three small conference rooms, a mini computer lab and the main library floor.
The main library has a book collection of 26,000 books, art prints, cassette and CD music and films. There are 50 PC computers available for research with four electronic databases, internet access and an online library catalog.
mini computer lab features two high end computers available for individual student
use. To use this room it is advisable to reserve in advance.
The Career Center provides resources to assist students and parents in their search for information regarding career exploration, occupational trends, aptitude assessment, as well as vocational, two and four-year colleges and universities. These resources are in the form of printed books and brochures, videos, audiotapes and DVDs, which are available for check out. The Career Center computers are equipped with programs and internet links for up to the minute information. There are also periodic visits from various representatives from organizations and colleges who interact with students.
The library technology classroom aka L-2 lab, has thirty three IBM compatible computers with Microsoft Office and Internet access and several specialized computer applications. From December 2011 to October 2013, it will be used as a classroom due to construction of our new classroom buildings.
There is a mini computer lab, future makerspace, labeled as L-1 with 22 computer stations and 6 tables.
