• 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.
