Visiting the Library

Students are welcome to use the library throughout the day. A valid pass from a teacher is required. Students need to sign in at the circulation desk before and after their visit.

Students are expected to follow the school-wide rules of behavior while visiting the library.

If a student becomes disruptive or disrespectful, they will be asked to leave.

Borrowing Library Materials


Students can borrow two books at a time. Books circulate for two weeks and can be renewed once for an additional two weeks if necessary. Overdue materials are charged .05 cents per day. Overdue notices are sent to homeroom teachers. If a book is lost or damaged, students will be charged the cost of the book.

Faculty and Staff may borrow library materials as well. Loan periods may be extended for teachers using materials for instruction.

Library Mission Statement

The Mission of the library media program is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. The mission is accomplished by:

  • Providing intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats
  • Providing instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas
  • Working with other educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students
