The Dr. Betty G. Allen Library at Holten-Richmond Middle School is named after former middle school Principal, Assistant Superintendent, and Superintendent Betty Allen.

The mission of the library is to offer a flexible space that allows teaching, learning, and collaboration among members of the school community to occur.  This “learning commons” approach supports the academic and personal growth of students; promotes reading for pleasure, information, and research; and provides virtual access to resources beyond its walls.

We welcome you to a lively, enjoyable, and productive learning commons.
