Welcome to the Carlisle Middle School Library website.

The Carlisle Middle School library is set up for easy browsing, self-study, group work, and class visits/work area.

The library collection is continually changing.   Our major goal over the next few years is to revamp the nonfiction and biography sections so it is up-to-date and more user-friendly.  Our fiction selection is a nice balance of classics and popular teen and adult novels.  We have just recently begun a graphic novel collection.
