News and Announcements

  • Don't forget that students will still have access to our online library resources over the summer!  Students can read ebooks or listen to audiobooks on Big Universe or MackinVIA.  Students can also check out all of the amazing resources at Knox County Public Library with their new library cards!  

    I can't wait to hear about all the fabulous books you've read when we come back to school in August!
