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 (AHS19*20).

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. 


Congrats to our 2019 Abe Lincoln Readers' Choice and Read for a Lifetime participants:

The book will be placed in a box along with some surprise items such as candy, a bookmark, and small toys/games. When finished, return the book in the box--keep the surprise items--and they will make another selection for you! Registration is limited to patrons between the ages of 12-18 years. Registration can be done at a Hayner Library location or online at:
