About the Library

Library Staff

Hi, I am Ms. Alba, Desert Foothills' Library and Media Specialist.  Please do not hesitate to ask for assistance or book recommendations. 

Library Hours

The library is open 8:45-4:00.

Library Purpose

The purpose of the Desert Foothills library is to support students' development as lifelong learners and readers. This is accomplished by giving students access to resources and teaching them to evaluate information; the very skills needed to be successful in the Age of Information.  Library skills  and information-literacy instruction encourage responsible behavior and the ethical treatment of others, both in-person and online. It is our goal to encourage students to practice the most fundamental skill: reading.
