About the Library

Justice Library welcomes all students, teachers and staff. The library is a warm and comfortable space, and in addition to being an integral part of the school's instructional program, it serves as:

  • a place of instruction,

  • a place to access quality resources,

  • a place for students to work independently,

  • a place for students to be during free choice periods such as lunch and after school.

Students are encouraged to spend time in the library to work, relax, and interact with others.  At all times, students are expected to be behave in a responsible manner that respects the needs of other library users and does not create a disruptive or distracting environment.
