Welcome to the Library

We are so fortunate to have a new and beautiful library with over 18,000 books and awesome views of the Sandia Mountains. The library facility includes three computer labs, a classroom, a small conference room, and a large main area.

    The library is a great place to browse, read, study, use a computer, use the copy machine, write, draw, collaborate with friends, work on projects, or even play a game of chess.

    The library has a generous collection of fiction books organized in genres including fantasy, supernatural, science fiction, dystopian, historical fiction, horror, mystery, adventure, sports, romance, classics, realistic fiction, short stories, and graphic novels.

Anne Frank Exhibit on Display

Anne Frank Human Rights Display in the Library

The Anne Frank Exhibit: A History For Today, from the New Mexico Human Rights project, was recently showcased in our library. IB students helped coordinate the set-up and break-down of the exhibit. IB Students attended an informational training to learn about the exhibit. IB students became docents who gave instructional tours to Sandia students throughout the week. A big thank you goes to Mr. Maestas and to all the IB students who helped with the exhibit and tours!
