The Fairhope High School library is a well-equipped learning lab with the goal of supporting the curriculum needs of students and teachers as well as promoting reading for pleasure.
Special emphasis is placed on research skills. Lessons developed are based on collaboration with classroom teachers. Topics include Alabama Virtual Library, databases versus websites, citing resources, web page evaluation, copyright, smart searching, credible and reliable sources on the Internet, plagiarism, easy online citing of sources, saving documents safely, using the online card catalog, locating print resources, and utilizing the reference materials.
Reading is promoted through book talks, the New Books Shelf, the magazine collection, contests, and displays. Approximately 4,000 of the titles in the collection of 14,000 are novels. Collection development is influenced by student requests, teacher requests, curriculum alignment, collection needs, and new release recommendations.
