Borrowing Library Materials
Borrowing Library Items
Found a great book? The borrowing period for students is 15 school days (3 weeks). Limit: 2 items per student.
Want to continue reading your book? Swing by the library or send us an email to renew if you need additional time! No need to bring the book.
Consideration of Others
Please be mindful of library material due dates, and that other students may be looking to borrow the material that you have checked out. If you have overdue materials or a library balance, you will need to renew/return or satisfy your balance before you are able to borrow again. Speak to the library staff if there are special circumstances or if you need assistance.
Lost or Damaged Books
Show some love to the Library and please be responsible with our school library materials! Be careful, as students must pay the cost of replacing lost or damaged materials (before borrowing additional items).
Check "My Info" in your library account to check for due dates, fines, and hold status. Students are notified of overdue material via email.
