Welcome to the Library Page!

Durham’s library program is dedicated to ensuring that students learn to be effective users of information and literate lifelong learners. We work with teachers to assure that materials are on hand to help students with their reading and research assignments. Library staff is ready to help students with individual questions and help them choose great books.
