Our library is open to all members of the ADL school community! Come in to find a great book, do research, make projects, brainstorm amazing ideas, or simply curl up in a cozy space to read.
The goal of the library is to provide every member of the ADL community with the best resources for academic and personal growth.
About the Collection
The library has a wide range of materials covering a variety of subjects, interests, and reading levels to support and enrich the curriculum. Recognizing the fact that our library contains materials from picture books through adult books, we encourage parents and guardians to discuss their children’s reading selections with them.

- Items are due back 2 weeks after checkout.
