Library Rules and Procedures
During class time, students must have a signed and dated pass from their teacher and a lesson or clear directions in hand.
Teachers are asked to sign up for class or small group visits at least 24 hours in advance and must supervise their students the entire visit. Please refrain from using cell phones, keep an eye on your scholars, and do not use library computers for non-school related business while your students are in the library.
Students and staff may use the library for reading and relaxing, browsing for books, studying/doing homework, researching, using a computer for school-related projects, pre-approved club meetings, and special events participation. Please do not use the library as a hang-out spot.
All library patrons are asked to refrain from eating, drinking, and chewing gum. Please work quietly and calmly, and handle all library materials, equipment, and furniture with care. Leave your area clean and safe by picking up after yourself and pushing in your chair.
Students must have a current school photo ID to check out materials.
Books: Students may check out up to three items for two weeks at a time. Materials may be renewed twice, for a total of six weeks.
Reference: Some reference materials may be checked out after school for overnight use, but they must be returned before homeroom the following morning.
Overdue materials are charged 10 cents per day, per item, but not including holidays or librarian absences. The maximum fine per item is $5.00.
Lost and damaged books will cost the current replacement price of the book, which includes vendor book-processing fees. The library does not accept books in return for lost or damaged books.
Computers are for class-related/school-related work only.
NOTE: no gaming, e-mailing, or random surfing of the net allowed on computers. See library staff for help with search engines, directories, databases, and web sites.
