Library

SHS houses two comprehensive libraries--one for the students, faculty, staff of the LMS and PSK, and one for those at SHP. Library staff seek to promote a lifelong love of learning and reading through a variety of diverse resources and mediums. Beginning with basic information literacy instruction, the librarians encourage intellectual curiosity and critical thinking, which enhance the array of complex skills students need to live, learn, and work successfully in a global community.

All online services are accessible from home using a password.  The program emphasizes the development of higher-order thinking skills that aid the process of locating, evaluating, and using information in an academic context.
