Besides our knowledgeable librarian and library ed tech, who are always happy to pull titles on a particular topic or suggest a book, we have a dozen magazine subscriptions, book lists by grade, database subscriptions, a strong knowledge of MARVEL! – the Maine Virtual Library, and a commitment to making these resources known and available.
