King Library

The King Library supports the ongoing education of every student, encouraging lifelong learning and a love of reading. We help students become literate information users and critical thinkers through lessons around research and exposure to a variety of literature.


If you would like to check out a book, check the King Library Catalog to see if the book is available, and then submit a Book Request Form.

You may also email Mr. Holmes (tomholmes@berkeley.net) or Ms. Zemach (amiellezemach@berkeley.net)

We would also love to learn more about you so that we can provide you with the books and resources that will interest you:
