Welcome to the NFHS Library

- a vibrant place of research, collaboration, learning and fun!

                  Meet our Staff:

The NFHS library houses a collection of 30,000 books, periodicals, and e-books with 25 stationary computers and COWs (Computers On Wheels). Students and staff are encouraged to visit the library to research for class assignments, collaborate in study groups, or find a great read and enjoy their favorite beverage! Stop by before school for a rousing game of chess or checkers or a game of pool. The library staff is here to assist students and staff in finding excellent reads, using databases and searching for information online.

Request a class time in the library

If you are planning to bring a class to the library, please fill out a Library Time Request form. The librarian will contact you within one school day to confirm your request. Also, please fill out a library lesson plan sheet before your library visit in so that the librarian will be better prepared to assist your class.
