Library

Instructor: Ruth Latta   

The Eagle Ridge Library fosters a continuous quest for learning by providing access to quality materials, promoting literacy, and maintaining an active system of support for students and staff.

The library is a very active place!  We are open at 7:45 a.m. for students to return and check out books.  Students may also come in throughout the day and during the last half of their lunch period.  

KEEP READING!
