About Us and Hours
King City Secondary School's Library engages with students and teachers alike in the learning process to build a community of learners.  Integrated and purposeful collaborative relationships among all members of King City's learning community result in empowered 21st century, lifelong learners.  We strive to prepare lifelong learners, information literate citizens who are competent in their ability to evaluate relevant and authoritative information in addition to effectively and ethically communicating the results of their inquiry and research. We provide a welcoming, respectful, and safe environment that promotes learning and well-being for all

Library Use Guidelines and Expectations
 
The Library’s primary function is as a teaching area which means scheduled classes are given priority access to space and resources during all periods. Students are permitted for quiet study, research, and recreational reading when space permits.
