The RCI Library Learning Commons is bustling hub of collaborative, cooperative, digital, global, and individual learning. With teacher-librarians and a wealth of digital and print resources, students learn to locate, assess, process, and create the information they need for assignments, to read for fun and for depth, to tinker, explore, and make, and to become independent life-long learners. The teacher-librarians collaborate with classroom teachers across subject areas to design and carry out inquiry assignments, select and teach effective and ethical use of print and online resources, and maintain a physical and virtual program for students 24/7.

Library Hours:

The library is open during regular class times.
As well, the teacher-librarians volunteer their extra-curricular time to keep the library open at lunch and after school on most regular school days, 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (3:15 p.m. on Fridays).
