Supporting students' quest for learning
Specifically, the library supports the academic work of our students and faculty by:
- Teaching research skills in grades 6 - 12
- Providing access to authentic resources
- Integrating technology into our curriculum
- Offering reference services
To supplement EC library resources, we recommend that all EC students acquire a King County Library System library card to take advantage of the extensive print and electronic collections of our excellent public libraries. Visit kcls.org for more information.
Quiet, supervised study times available
The library is open for quiet, supervised study throughout the day. Students can study independently or in groups from 7:30 a.m. until classes begin, and from 3:05 p.m. until the library closes at 6 p.m. Our librarian is available to help with research until 3:30 p.m., or later by appointment. Students have access to a range of textbooks and other materials supporting our curriculum and popular fiction for casual reading in an atmosphere of engaged study.

Eastside Catholic students and their family members have access to our library catalog, NoodleTools, electronic databases and e-books through PlusPortals. To access these resources, log into PlusPortals, click on groups on the top right of the page and select Library from the pulldown menu.
