The Park View Library is open daily from 7:30 am-2:40 pm.
All Park View faculty, staff and students have access to Interlibrary Loan through RILINK. Our school receives deliveries three times per week. Interlibrary loan serves as a vehicle to supplement our collection. Students and staff have individual logins to reserve their own materials or library staff can place the hold on their behalf.
Our policy is as follows:
All items in circulation are available for interlibrary loan.
Library staff, school faculty and patrons can submit interlibrary loan requests.
Interlibrary loan requests will be filled at the discretion of the school librarian.
Local patron hold requests take precedence over interlibrary loan requests for the same item.
Items that are specifically reserved for in-library or classroom use are temporarily excluded from interlibrary loan as needed.
An individual patron can request a maximum of three items at one time.
ILL requests will be filled (or declined) as quickly as possible.
There are no interlibrary loan fees or overdue fines.
Lost or significantly damaged items must be paid for at the cost of replacement. In certain circumstances, a replacement copy may be accepted.
Items borrowed through interlibrary loan have a 28 day loan period and can be renewed one time.

Park View Library Service Policy
The Park View school library serves a community of more than 700 students in grades 6, 7 and 8 as well as 80 teachers/support staff. The library is open each day from 7:30-2:40 for individual and classroom instruction and book circulation.
The collection holds approximately 11,000 print items and 300 DVD/videos and is supplemented by Interlibrary Loan (ILL) requests. Student/teacher requests, review sources and annual awards lists, and circulation statistics help drive acquisition and weeding decisions. Students may take books home for three weeks and renew materials indefinitely as long as no other student has placed a hold on them. Faculty may borrow items and classroom sets for research projects with no time limit.
Collaborative lessons aligned with content CCSS and AASL Standards for the 21st Century Learner and the RIDE Cross Curricular Proficiencies are the focus of our library program.
