  • Students and parents of students may place requests or "holds" through the Library On-Line Catalog

    We are happy to announce a new service, "Books-To-Go". Books-To-Go is an opportunity for students and parents to request print books through our DMA library. Due to Covid-19, we want to be sure that students have access to print materials to enhance their academic learning, whether they are learning virtually or face-to-face. Mr. Marvin will see your request and get your book order ready for pick up. Please limit the number of books requested to 1 - 2 books. Mr. Marvin will then contact you about a day and time to pick up your "book order".
