About the Library
The library is open most school days from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Students are welcome to work in four different areas of the library. The main library area includes spaces for both group and independent study. The group study rooms are available for check-out by small groups of students. The quiet/silent reading area is for students who wish to work alone with no conversation. The library classroom is for classes only and is reserved by teachers.
The library offers a variety of print and electronic resources to students. Most print resources can be checked out for a period of three weeks with the exception of reference materials and short-term materials which are high in demand. Fines for overdue materials are .10 per day for normal check out periods and $1.00 for reference and short-term materials. Students who lose a book must pay the retail cost of the book plus a $5.00 processing fee.
Electronic subscription services are purchased to support the curriculum and are available from both home and school. Home access requires user names and passwords that are available from library staff. The subscription services may be accessed from the library home page.
Librarians frequently work with classes to teach information literacy skills but are also available to help students who are working independently in the library. They welcome requests about good books to read, how to create and edit bibliographies/works cited pages, how to find expert articles and other informational and learning needs. Additionally, your librarians are well-versed in Google Apps and other technologies and can assist with your digital literacy needs.
