The KHS Library holds approximately 12,000 volumes, with new titles arriving every month. The fiction and nonfiction collections contain a wide variety of genres, subjects, interest levels, and Lexile reading levels. The KHS collection overall represents multiple perspectives that reflect the diverse society in which our students live, in order to promote critical thinking and thoughtful inquiry.

Faculty, students, and parents may request titles that they wish the KHS library to carry. All requests will be considered and fulfilled according to relevance, need, and budget.
