Two librarians and several learning areas allow the library to be open throughout the whole school day for research, independent study, and to exchange books while scheduled classes are being taught.
The SHCS Library boasts over 18,000 books, over 1,400 audio-visual materials, and access to online research databases and the World Book Encyclopedia through the Tennessee Electronic Library.
Sacred Heart participates in an annual Scholastic Book Fair to raise funds for our library and expose our students to the newest titles in children's literature.
The library wishes to thank all the faculty, staff, parents and students for making the last Scholastic Book Fair a tremendous success! The decorations were awesome, the students had a great time, parent volunteers exceeded any previous year, middle school students worked for service hours, and the “spirit of reading” was evident throughout the school!
The Sacred Heart Magazine Drive is a great way to support our school's library. During the annual subscription drive, students and classes are eligible to receive prizes for sales.
You can order magazine at any time and the library earns 40% of your purchase!
Thank you for your support!
