Library Resources


The Paraclete High School library provides a dynamic, welcoming place for study and scholarship for both students and staff. Patrons of the library have access to academic resources both in print and on-line. The book collections and the computers are tools for students and faculty to pursue research for classes and their own individual private reading. The print materials and electronic databases are chosen specifically to support the curriculum.
