Our Mission

The McKinley Technology, High School library, prepares students for life beyond high school by providing access to resources, instructional workshops, and cultural events that help students become independent, information-literate, critical thinkers. The library provides a comfortable and nonjudgmental atmosphere that nurtures a love of reading. The library also supports the school's rigorous, relevant, and socially just curriculum through collaboration with various stakeholders, inclusive collection development, and technology advocacy, as well as an overall commitment to laying the foundation for lifelong learning, the everlasting desire for intellectual stimulation, and the continual challenge of the status quo.


Our Library

A newly remodeled Library space at McKinley Tech HS Library is a quiet space for independent reading, research, and study, replete with study tables and computer stations. Is ready to host cultural speaker events, school academic clubs, author’s visits, and school activities.
