 ebooks! 
Hawks, did you know that the TVHS Library has an ebook collection? Access it by logging in to Destiny Discover (the catalog link on the right) with your school email and student ID number. You can also view your book checkouts and put books on hold through this login. If you have any questions or need additional help, see Mrs. Riffle. 
 
 Printing PSA 
Students, remember to plan ahead for all your printing needs. Sometimes, the library has to close unexpectedly for meetings, testing, etc. Sometimes, a passing period just isn't enough time (and I won't write you a pass if that's when you choose to print). Sometimes, technology decides not to cooperate. Don't leave your printing until the last moment!

 Book Request Form 
If you have a suggestion for a book that belongs in the TVHS Library, fill out this Google Form. One form submission per book title please. I will look through these submissions when purchasing books

ABOUT THE LIBRARY 
The Tanque Verde High School Library does more than books. We have comfortable chairs for reading and socializing, computers for research, and several tables for homework, meetings, and testing.

The library staff assists teachers and students with reference and research, technology use, class projects, and more.  The librarian instructs classes on good resources, works with students individually, and plans units with teachers that use the most recent technology and book resources in order to prepare students for college level research experiences.
 
The Librarian
Paige Riffle is the librarian for Tanque Verde High School. She is a fully certified teacher, and she has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Creative Writing and Near Eastern Studies from the University of Arizona. This is her fourth year as the TVHS Librarian/Technology Integration Specialist.
 
Library Collection
The high school library has over 4000 books, educational videos, and magazines geared to both adult and young adult interest. Books can be checked out for two weeks.

Library Expectations
Students are expected to be respectful and responsible at all times. To visit the library during class, students are required to have passes. Phones may not be used during a class period. Students must use inside voices. Food and drink are allowed in the tiled area only.

Helpful Areas
There are 8 desktops in the library for student use. The library also houses ten (!) class sets of Chromebooks that can be reserved by teachers for class use.
