Welcome to the Angell Library!What a wonderful place where students, teachers, and families find great books, magazines, and electronic resources, and where students learn to love reading, to become responsible digital citizens, to discover information, to use technology tools, and to become curious lifelong learners.
While we are at home practicing social distancing, we want to let families know we both hold office hours twice a week.
This is a great time to reach out via email or through Seesaw if you have library related questions. We can also help with the occasional access problems and can send QR codes, if needed.
