Library & Media

The Avenues library program provides students, faculty, and community with an extensive array of carefully selected books and digital resources, services, and instruction to support learning and inquiry at Avenues and beyond. The goal of the program is to equip students with the necessary twenty-first century information fluency skills and strategies to become information literate, and empower students to be critical thinkers and ethical users of information in a global world. The program exposes the Avenues community to a wide-range of literature, representing a diversity of cultures, viewpoints, ideas, and languages.

Our librarys' digital collections are accessible in multiple formats and languages, examples of which include e-books, audiobooks, subject and periodical databases, and video resources. In addition, our physical collections are openly accessible and comprised of English, Spanish and Chinese titles. Our print collections currently consist of more than 13,000 volumes, and our digital collections are continuously expanding.

Families are encouraged to use our libraries. We have an active and robust volunteer program in both the Early Learning Center, Lower Division and Upper Division libraries.

Please reach out to Alia Methven (, Director of Library and Media Services, if you have any questions or are interested in volunteer opportunities.

Meet Alia Methven

The mission of the Avenues libraries is to provide a diverse collection of books and digital resources reflective of the school’s global curriculum and the detailed instruction to foster and promote inquiry, research, and engagement in reading. As an educator and information professional, I believe it is paramount to provide a dynamic and collaborative library program that supports learning, information and digital literacies, and reading.
