Welcome to your library! Open the door to more...
Our library stocks Young Reader's Choice books and award winners. New fiction and nonfiction selections are continually added to our collection. Your librarian and aide will be happy to suggest a great book. We order new titles from your suggestions, teacher recommendations, and starred reviews. There are many eBooks available for downloading to your personal device as well as access to West Ada's library on SORA. We invite you to read, read, read!
We can assist with identifying appropriate research sites, citing resources, and working in Microsoft Teams.
We look forward to seeing you!
