Applications for New Tutors


Welcome to the Mills Library Homepage!  


To access the catalog, click on Online Resources in the right column and select Mills High School from the list of schools. Several academic online databases are available at the links underneath.  As a Mills student, you have access to these databases from any computer, anywhere, anytime.  Please come to the library and pick up a list of passwords.  If you have a Peninsula Library System card, click on the Public Library Catalog link to reserve a book not available at our library.  


Along with a large collection of books, reference materials and magazines, the library has 35 computers with Office 2010 and various student friendly programs that offer tools for study, creative design, and writing organization.  Whether you come to the library on your own with a pass or with your class, or during brunch or lunch, feel free to ask library staff for any assistance on finding books or using the computers.  

We hope to see you in the library!
