Welcome to The Newton High School Library

TIGER TERRITORY

    The goal of NHS Library is to promote the love of reading and the pursuit of knowledge for all students and staff of NHS.

     We support our mission, "to prepare all students to be productive, informed, and actively contributing members of society," by providing the best information available through Books, AV materials and Internet Sources.  This information is used to support our curriculum and information requested by our patrons.

The library is open Monday - Friday from 7:20 am to 3:30pm.

Arrangements maybe made to use the library earlier or later by contacting Mrs. Hailey or Mrs. Logan.
