The Library Media Center at St. Francis DeSales High School is committed to helping students, faculty, staff, and the community meet their information needs. Our goal is to support the school curriculum with materials and equipment, and to provide a place for students before, during, and after the school day. We also strive to provide current media and promote recreational reading for the entire community.
