Welcome Back, Hawks!
It's so great seeing all of you on campus (and on screens, those of you who are remote). Currently, the library is not open for you to work in here during class or hang out during lunch. However, you can still stop by to check out or return books!

And did you know you can check out ebooks and audiobooks on the Sora app or website? You don't even need a public library card! Just use your student Gmail login info for access to the TVHS collection and the Pima County Public Library collection of ebooks and audiobooks. Keep reading and keep learning!

The Tanque Verde High School Library is more than just a room full of 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.
Paige Riffle is the librarian for Tanque Verde High School. She is a fully certified teacher and holds a Library Media Specialist endorsement and a Gifted endorsement. She also has a Bachelor's degree in Creative Writing and Near Eastern Studies from the University of Arizona. This is her fifth year as the TVHS Librarian.
Library Aide
Karissa Harlow is the library aide at Tanque Verde High School. She has a Bachelor's degree in English Literature and enjoys reading and writing in her spare time. This is her second year at TVHS, and our library wouldn't function as well without her!
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 expected to have passes. Students must sign in and out every visit. 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. 
For More Information
The menu bar has additional library links so you can explore more of what our library has to offer, including special events and online resources. (Note: These links are currently disabled/hidden as we've had to hit pause on a lot of our normal events and offerings due to the COVID-19 pandemic.)
