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.
