Welcome to the Montville High School Library

Check us out!  We are open every day before and after school (and from 4-8 on Mondays and Thursdays!).  You can do your homework, read a graphic novel, browse the internet or relax in a comfy chair.

Tips: 

Once you have exhausted the information found in the print sources, use these links to search for additional information on your animal.
Don’t forget to cite in ieScholar as you use resources!

Try searching for your animal by scientific name OR by the family or order when you are researching the past!

Great for any present day information you are missing.
