​Welcome to M.A. Riffel Catholic High School Resource Centre. 
Students and staff are welcome to access multiple resources such as books, audio/video equipment and internet resources.  The library also provides on-line databases found on the Regina Catholic Schools' home page. Computers are available for library and internet searches and word processing. Students are issued a library card in early fall.  Students are asked to keep their library cards with them to sign out books.  

Virtually browse our library collection by going to the Destiny Discover link on the drop down menu to the left.  Once you find a book that you would like to take out, fill in this jot form:
