Here is a message from our librarian, Ms. McGill:
Stony Point Dragons love reading—students and staff had 10,125 checkouts last year!
Students and staff used our new Destiny catalog last year to place over 100 holds on items, that the librarian then delivered to their classes.
A huge shout-out to the PTO for supporting our school library—they pay for a yearly Junior Library Guild subscription, which brings new books to the SPES Library monthly!
