The ECHS Library

Since the earliest days of the school, the East Catholic library has been a unique spot for study, research, special projects, and pleasure reading for students and faculty alike. We welcome the opportunity to serve the East Catholic Community.

Our Library

Our library is a modern, attractive 3,000 square-foot library media center, retaining the best of the "traditional" library while incorporating the latest in state-of-the-art computers and technology. Every day, over 200 students utilize the library and all its resources.

Library Technology

The library media center includes: 

  • A main seating area with 13 computers for student use
  • 25 work stations in a library computer lab
  • A separate area with twelve computers for independent language study and 25 laptops on a mobile cart
  • 2 additional computer labs are located down the hall with 30 and 25 computers and are available for classroom technology instruction 
  • A state-of-the-art computer lab is located in the new math/science addition

Databases

The library subscribes to numerous databases that can be accessed using the student portal. These databases include iCONN, Gale Group, Contemporary Literary Criticism, Gale Virtual Reference Library, Classroom Video on Demand, Issues and Controversies, Follett School Catalog, and Questia.

East is committed to ensuring that the library, as well as the rest of the school, stays abreast of the latest in computers and educational technology.
