Student Resources

The Copper Queen Library is proud to partner with the Bisbee Unified School District.  On this page, you will find links to download audiobooks, ebooks, and emagazines.  There's a link to connect to the Online Catalog as well, where you can search Cochise County for books, DVDs, music CDs, and books on CD.  Find something you like?  Simply place a hold on the item(s) using your library barcode and 4-digit PIN and you'll receive a notification email when it's ready to be picked up at the Copper Queen Library.  Don't have a library card?  Register in your school's office, or stop by the library with a school ID and proof of address.

​Also on this page are links to student resource databases and World Book Encyclopedias.  Search for articles and primary resources for your school research papers.  There's even a link for practicing your language skills, as well as a link to various practice tests, including the SAT and ASVAB.

The Bisbee High School Annual, known as the Cuprite, has just hit the centennial mark. This year’s publication (2016) marks the 100th anniversary of the classic yearbook and the CQ Library is happy to add it to the rest of our collection of Cuprites, which is housed in the Rare Books Room. We recently teamed up with Bisbee High School to catch our collection up to date and to try to fill in some of our missing years. We still have some gaps, so if you want to donate a missing year, contact us!  MISSING: 1916, -17, -18 -20, -27, -28, -32, -94, -95, 2004, -06, -11
