The mission of the library is to provide a variety of books and materials to support curriculum and promote a lifelong love of reading. Our goal is to provide an atmosphere where you can read, study, and use the computers in an intelligent and responsible manner.
The following guidelines will facilitate this goal.
1. If you want to socialize, go outside.
2. If you need to discuss your assignment, your voice must remain low to maintain a quiet atmosphere.
3. Chairs must remain at the tables or computers where they belong. Please push your chair in when you leave the library.
4. Couches are reserved for silent reading only.
5. The internet is available for use in school curriculum related projects only. There is a charge of 10 cents to print. A coin operated copy machine is also available at 10 cents per copy.
6. You must have your student ID to check out books and to use the internet.
7. Know what supplies you will need to complete an assignment and bring them with you.
8. No food, drinks, candy or gum is allowed in the library.
9. Respect the rights of others. Everyone has the right to work in a quiet environment.
You must have your student I.D. to check out a book!
Our library collection is online. You can search for a book by Title, Author, Subject or Series. It will tell you where the book is located and if it is available for check out. Library books are checked out 3 weeks. Please return books when you are finished with them so that they are available to other students. Books can be renewed one time only. You may check out books ONLY for yourself. You are responsible for lost and damaged books.
Reference books are checked out overnight only and must be returned before the start of school the following day. Magazines are not checked out. You may use them in the library only.
Overdue notices are posted in your Language Arts classrooms. Failure to return the late book will result in detention.
Parents: Please be aware what your child is reading. It is the responsibility of the parent to monitor what their child is reading. Our library houses a wide selection of teen and young adult books. We make every effort to cater to our student’s wide range of maturity levels. If you have concerns about specific books, please feel free to contact me. Together, we can make our school library the best it can be for all our students.
Failure to adhere to these rules may result in loss of library privileges.
Computers in the library are used for school work only!
You must have your student I.D. to use the computers in the library.
