Are you looking for a good book to read or need one for a class assignment? The following link will take you to the Alexandria Library Catalog System:  Once you have accessed this site, select "Alton High School" and then "Researcher" to begin searching for books in the AHS Library.  You can also find this link under the "Students" heading at  


When doing academic research, the WILSON database powered by Ebsco has articles that are credible and research based.  These can be accessed through the following link or under the "Students" tab on the Alton School District webpage.  If you access this outside of school, you will need the username (altoncsd) and password (ebsco).

Join the Bibliophilia Club!!     

Bibliophilia means "the love of books".  If you like to read, like to talk about books you have read with others, or want to encourage others to read, then this is the club for you!  We meet the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month from 3:15 - 4:15 pm in the AHS Library. 


Library Policy: Library books are checked out for a 2 week period. A card is placed in the pocket of the book with the due date stamped on the card. Books may be renewed once for another 2 week period. Overdue books will be assessed a fine of 10¢ per day up to the replacement cost of the book. Books that are not returned will be marked as "lost" and will result in the patron being charged the replacement cost of the book. If "lost" books are found and returned, the replacement cost fee will be refunded however the patron will be assessed a fine since the books were not returned in a timely manner.
