When can I come to the library?

Students may come with their class during scheduled class times. Students may also come before school, during lunch and after school to access the library and the computer lab. During the school day, students must present their I.D.s and planners signed by the teacher.

What do I need to know to use the library on my own?

All students must sign in and present a current school ID upon entering the Library Resource Center. You may use a computer, the wireless internet service, find a place for quiet study or check out a book.


All food and drink must be left at the front counter.  


Student use of the library is a privilege. Appropriate behavior is expected. Talking is permitted as long as it is in a soft, low voice. Respect for classes and other students who have come to complete school work is very important.  Inappropriate behavior can result in being asked to leave immediately.


How do I check out a book?

Students may check out up to 2 books at a time. The loan period is 14 days.(Books may be renewed for another 14 days unless there is a hold pending on the book.)

You may not check out a book if you have overdue books or outstanding lost or damaged book fines. We do not charge overdue fines; however, lost books do have a fine based on the book price.

It is important to take care of any fines as soon as possible. 



Remember: Mrs. Ball is here to help you use the many resources available. If you need assistance be sure to ask at the front desk. We love questions and will try our best to help you!!.
