The library at Mercy McAuley High School is home to over 10,000 print and electronic resources that support the academic and personal life-long learning needs of our students, faculty, and staff. Every student is enrolled in the Library Resources class on Blackboard, where they can access our databases, research guides tailored for specific classes and assignments, and other electronic resources. We also have a robust LibGuide site for research help, web resources, citations, and more!
Our bright and spacious library is designed to accommodate individuals, small groups, or entire classes in a variety of learning configurations. The library adds new fiction and non-fiction materials to our collection regularly, subscribes to professional journals and periodicals tied to the curriculum, and provides state-of-the-art educational databases for research from home or at school. A large-screen presentation television, printers (color and black & white), copier and scanner, digital cameras, video recorders, e-readers, headphones, and microphones are available for student, faculty, and staff use.
A Makerspace was recently added to the library. This space provides the technology and tools for our students to unleash their creativity. With 3D printers, a Cricut Explore, and a wide variety of robotics and coding games, plus supplies for arts and crafts, the Makerspace is a hub for learning and making.
The library staff participate in ongoing professional development in order to provide and promote the newest and most reliable educational, research, and technological practices in our community. All are encouraged to utilize our resources and create and collaborate in our space.
