Please contact Mrs. Toll if you are interested in being a student adviser to the library.


Use the online catalog to find magazines, books,
videos and much more in your school library.

Ell-Saline Family--The library software was upgraded over spring break so the Library Catalog/Researcher looks different.  These upgrades should allow you to research easier and quicker.  There are many great new options, so while you have some time, please explore and get to know your library's catalog.  I still recommend that you sort by call number if you are looking for research materials.  Sorting by call number will bring up nonfiction items first, then fiction, then magazines.  

Please feel free to email me at dtoll@ellsaline.org if you have any questions.

You may access digital books through the State Library of Kansas  and through Salina Public Library.
