Meet our Library Staff

Our library and tech staff are here every day. We'll check out books for individuals and classes; give advice, teach, and provide access to online resources, assist with research, and more.  

The City High School Library is a place for teaching, learning, and creating.  We hope to help students and teachers to inquire, include, collaborate, curate, explore, and engage--acquiring knowledge and skills to become life-long learners and responsible, resourceful citizens.

For more information about the library program and curriculum in the Iowa City Community School District, please visit the district Library Program page.
