Welcome to the Central High School Library!

Our library is one of the best places in the school.  It has been outfitted with comfortable furniture and boasts a large collection.  There is also an adjacent computer lab to this room.  Students and teachers are encouraged to visit the library often.

Reference area of library

The library is open from 7:25 am until 2:41 pm each day. 

Check out our calendar page to learn of events connected with the library.  Be sure to also visit the links page for lots of helpful websites and a link to the Alabama Virtual Library. We have recently added a student skills page, which features guides and tutorials on information skills and library usage.  

Mrs. Jordan and Mrs. Harvel also welcome you to visit their bio pages.

“For one who reads, there is no limit to the number of lives that may be lived, for fiction, biography, and history offer an inexhaustible number of lives in many parts of the world, in all periods of time.” 
― Louis L'Amour
