The library is a place to read, research, study, and create.
Students may work independently or complete small group projects quietly.
Laptops, desktops and printers are available for academic work.
Library expectations apply before, during and after school.
The EGHS Library supports the mission and curriculum of East Greenwich High School and builds the foundation needed to transform students into lifelong learners, independent readers and respectful, responsible, ethical global citizens with the ability to make positive contributions to the world around them. This mission is accomplished by:
The EGHS Library embraces an open access philosophy. Open access means that students continue to use the Library on a regular basis to exchange books, receive guidance in selecting appropriate materials and use library resources.
It is often possible to get class sets of books through Inter-library loan. If you would like to get a class set of books, please check with me to see if there are enough copies of the title available throughout the RICAT system. If enough copies are available, please give me a copy of your class list, and I will request a book for every student. Please plan in advance, as it usually takes about two weeks for all of the books to arrive.
