Catholic Academy of West Buffalo has a fully automated library using the Alexandria Library Automation System.  The library has been completely updated with a collection of over 7300 items, including videos, classroom sets, magazines, hardcovers, paperbacks and Accelerated Reader resources.

Each class has a structured, weekly library class.  In addition, there are periods available for classes to come to the library and utilize hard-copy resources or online databases for research purpose.

You will find these links helpful for research. A user name and password are necessary to access database sites from home.  See me for these user names and passwords.
