Middle School/Upper School Library

The Middle School/Upper School Library maintains a diverse and inclusive collection of over 14,000 captivating, popular fiction titles, as well as award-winning nonfiction and reference books for students in grades 5-12. Students have access to over 40 databases from school and home, including encyclopedias, newspapers, ebooks, magazines, history and science resources, and literary topics. Library patrons work with librarians to hone information-literacy skills and become adept at finding, evaluating, interpreting, and integrating information. Shared space is available for group study, while the Reading Room provides a quiet environment for independent work.

TVS values its community of readers. Our librarians share their love of reading for pleasure with book programs, author visits, pop-up libraries in study halls, and book recommendations and suggestions for all readers.

Thank you for Supporting TVS at Barnes & Noble!

We loved seeing smiling TVS faces at the holiday bookfair at Barnes & Noble on Hulen! Extra-special thanks to the talented students who sang, played, performed, solved cubes, demonstrated with human-itronics and more! A portion of sales from TVS families was donated back to the TVS libraries.
