Library

 

Welcome to the RHS Learning Commons

The library serves as an extension of the classroom where students are empowered to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, skillful researchers, and ethical users and creators of information.  The school library media center is to provide and accessible, enjoyable, welcoming place for students, staff, and educators to find books, resources, and materials that will promote a love of reading and lifelong learning. 

The high school library has a collection of approximately 10,000 books and over 400 eBooks.  The library strives to meet the needs and wishes of our students.  Please submit requests for books in the library or by asking Mrs. Tietjen.  There are 33 computers located in the library for student use.  The library is open from 7:40 A.M. until 3:35 P.M. every weekday.  

 

Welcome to a Symbaloo- a visual representation of all the resources compiled for students, educators, and parents.  

How to navigate a symbaloo:  each tile below represents a website or resource.  All you have to do is click on the tile.  Some tiles house a grouping of choices.   For example, if I want to see all the digital resources for research, I can click on the “Digital Resources” tile and all the available databases are shown.  

Click on a tile to get started exploring!
