Demko Media Center & Library
The library is ready for students and the start of another exciting
school year here at Carl Hayden High School. We just received
over 1,000 new books and they are ready for student use. Our
staff is excited to serve our new and returning students. We
would like to remind them that we have only 3 rules here in the
library. First, students are expected to respect the right of the
other students to have a reasonably quite place to study.
Second, IDs must be worn at all times and third, no food or drinks are allowed in the
building. Of course, all other school rules must be followed.
The library is open from 7AM to 7:30pm Monday-Thursday. The library is open from
7AM to 3:30pm on Friday. The library is closed before/after school on staff meeting
days. Those days are typically on early release/late start days. Also, on most Saturdays
the library is open from 8AM through 12PM and involved with AIMS tutoring. There are
Math, Reading and English teachers on duty during this time to help all students. We
are not open on Saturdays during three day weekends and other holidays which fall on
When students come to the library at Carl Hayden they can expect to be in a full
service facility with over 100 computers, 35,000 books and an array of contemporary
magazines. The Phoenix Union High School District also provides a full complement of
databases for student and teacher use. The databases are top of the line products that
are designed to give our students the skills they will need to have when they make the
transition to college, career and life.
