Libraries

The TASOK Libraries contains approximately 15,000 volumes, as well as subscriptions to numerous magazines/periodicals and online databases. A growing collection of ebooks is also available. DVDs are available for use in the classroom. The collection includes materials in English, French and Spanish.
The TASOK libraries support teaching and learning in the classroom, as well as leisure reading at all levels. Students are encouraged to pursue their own interests with a wide variety of current age-appropriate literature. Books on the SAT-recommended reading list, AP, and SAT prep materials are also available. We endeavor to include popular literature, award winners, graphic novels, classics, and a core collection of non-fiction titles to support the curriculum.

PreK-Gr. 2: up to 2 books for 1 week
Gr. 3 – 5: up to 3 books for 1 week
