library policy and procedures

Visiting the Library

Before School

Between 7 and 7:50am ask Security in the Cafeteria for a Library Pass.

During School

Ask your Teacher/Advisor for a blue pass to the Library.  Teachers may send 2 students at a time to the Library, each with their own blue pass.

After School

Come to the Library, no pass needed.  Get signed in by 3:30 pm.  20 desktop computers are available.

Limited Space Available

When we have two or three classes working in the Library we will not have desktop computers available for students on passes.  Students are welcome to come to the Library to check out or return books, use their device in our Information Commons or comfy chair areas, or just kick back and read!  Very rarely we will close for a period if we are having a Library staff meeting.
