The Tanque Verde High School Library is an active library with an open–door policy. We do not do just books here. We have comfortable chairs for reading and hanging out with fellow students. Come eat your lunch or snack in the area set aside for socializing. You will also find lots of tables to do schoolwork, take tests or meet with teachers, as well as computers for research.
The library staff assists teachers and students with all reference needs from planning technology use, to class projects, to research needs. The librarians instruct classes on good resources, work with students individually, and plan units with teachers that use the most recent technology and book resources. We explore cutting edge technologies and websites with students in order to prepare them for college level research experiences.
Jayme Adams is the teacher/librarian for both Tanque Verde High School and Emily Gray Junior High. She splits her time between the two schools. She has an undergraduate degree in Biology, minor in Chemistry, secondary teaching certificate, and a masters degree in Information Resources and Library Science. She is very excited to be part of the Tanque Verde School District family, and is looking forward to working with all the students, teachers, and parents!
The high school library has over 2,000 books, educational videos, and magazines geared to both adult and young adult interest.
Books can be checked out for three weeks, and magazines for five days.
The library is open and available to students before and after school and during lunches. Students are required to have passes to use the library during class times. Passes can be obtained from any teacher.
A computer lab in the high school library (30 computers) with an additional computer lab on campus (this lab has 15 computers) serves both teachers and students. There are 6 additional desktops in the library for student use. We also have a netbook cart with 28 netbooks.
