Our collection contains literature and supplementary texts for K-12 students. In addition, we collect the adopted Escambia County School District textbooks. We also have games and manipulatives which are used in teaching. A strong CD and DVD collection complements the written sources. We collect the FTCE Study Guides for student use in preparation for certification tests.
