Tom Holmes, Teacher Librarian
I have been the librarian at King Middle School since 2007.
Amielle Zemach, Library Assistant
I am an alumna of UC Santa Cruz, with a major in Studies in Western Civilization. I have worked extensively in theater, explored psychology and various modes of natural healing. I love kids, books, art, writing, film and theater. In addition to my duties at the Library, I teach after school classes in creative writing (Writers Arise!) and film (Teen Screen). Working with books, young people and their infinite imagination is pretty much a dream job.
Open 8:30 - 3:05 Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays

The King Library is open to students before school, during breaks and after school every day. If no class is using the library during lunch, the library is open. Teachers can send students to the library anytime with a pass.
Students may check out up to five items at a time for a period of three weeks. Students are responsible for any items they check out. Please see the library staff if an item has been lost. You are responsible to pay the replacement cost unless other arrangements are made with the staff.
