Library Policies

The library is open on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday for the 2019-2020 school year.

Students may visit the library with their classes or with a pass from their teacher.  When entering the library with passes, students must sign in at the counter.  When leaving the library, students should sign out and have their passes signed by Mrs. Steward.
