Library & Technology


The vibrant library and technology services of The Mary P. Hastings & Ann K. Wegman Library aim to provide our 21st century student learners and teachers with resources to deepen their knowledge, broaden their horizons, and view the world from different perspectives. 
 
The AQ library is a learning environment conducive to independent study as well as group collaboration. We encourage reading with a wide variety of current and engaging fiction and non-fiction books, book promotions and displays, school-wide reading activities, and of course working closely with teachers to provide resources for instruction. Students are always welcome during the school day to check out books from our extensive collection to explore a new place or time, or to learn about the world around us.
