The Mance Buchanon Library Learning Commons
The mission of the Learning Commons is to provide a welcoming place for students and staff to engage, collaborate, and develop a love of reading, viewing and using information and ideas.
Welcome to the Library!
Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! Library books may be checked out for 3 weeks. If you need longer than 3 weeks to read your books, just stop in to renew them. (Note: Books that are on hold and Manga cannot be renewed.) Can't stop in but want something to read? Check out the MackinVia app on your Rapid Identity portal! On MackinVia you can find eBooks and audiobooks. You can also find links to research databases that can be used as reliable resources. Check it out!
The Scholastic Book Fair is coming September 12-16 and will also be open during Back to School Night on September 15. Online shopping will be available until September 30th. Check out the Scholastic Book Fair Video to get a sneak peek of some of the books that will be at the Fair!
