Welcome to the Library at Holy Rood RC High School
The library not only holds over 10,000 titles but if there is a book that you can’t find on the shelves here, Ms. McCabe promises to find it for you from somewhere else.
The library delivers information literacy skills through first and second year science classes and houses the study club on a Tuesday after school from 3:25 to 4:30 PM.
The library is open before school, during school and after school. The only break time the library is NOT open is on a Tuesday.
