Please Excuse Our Mess

We are in the process of changing our call number system. 

  • Materials found at the beginning of the collection have a Dewey call number.  (ex.: 330.P3613 2016 9-12 Student )
  •  Materials using our in-house call number are behind those materials. (ex.: 1/2019 MA ALGE 70.1 11-12)

Please ask the reference desk Librarian for assistance locating the materials.
