Orell Library

Mission Statement

The Orell Library Learning Commons should be a place where students learn how to find and use information to solve problems, make decisions, and effectively communicate new knowledge. As teacher librarians, Ms. Gould and Mrs. Maxey teach students how to be competent, critical, and ethical users of print and digital resources.


Orell Library is located in the “library” wing of campus. From the main office, proceed past the IT offices, through the outside doors and then into the library wing. Enter the library wing from the outside doors off the parking lot between Orton Hall and the Administrative Building. Visitors may park in front of the Administrative Building.
