Library

Martin High School has a beautiful library facility where students do research, study, or browse the collection. There are three classroom seating areas available to students and faculty for instructional purposes. The library also has thirty-one computers, over twenty thousand books, and twenty magazine subscriptions for student use. Computers can be used to access the Internet, the book catalog, as well as online library databases including Gale Resources, Facts-on-File, and the World Book Online Encyclopedia.

Goal

Our goal is to ensure quality education by providing access to resources in all formats, by providing guidance in the use of these resources, and by working together with the students and staff to meet the needs of the Martin community.
