Our Library

The library at the James F. Doughty School is a vibrant hub of activity and energy. We strive to offer programming that is exciting for all of our students by offering engaging, age-appropriate community reads throughout the year, and by developing relevant information literacy lessons closely aligned with curriculum. Feel free to contact Lori Patterson, Library Media Specialist, for more information. (lpatterson at
