    How to Visit the Library:
    Get a blue pass signed by your study hall or classroom teacher.  Your teacher may send as many as 5 students during a block, but EACH STUDENT needs to have an individual pass. Sign in at the Circulation Desk, stamp and leave your pass in the basket on the desk, and begin working.  

    Students may visit the library before and after school without a pass. 

    Students may also visit the library during their lunch block. All students must sign in and out during each visit.

     

    Checkout procedures:
    You must have your current school ID to check out a book. Students may check out as many as 5 books at a time. Print books are checked out for three (3) weeks, and may be renewed by a library staff member for an additional three week period. Penalties for excessive late returns may be administered. Books that over 30 days overdue may be marked lost and student charged.
     
    Students are responsible for monitoring due dates for all borrowed items. Due dates are stamped in back of all books at the time of checkout. Overdue reminders are emailed weekly. Ebooks return themselves at the end of the three week checkout period, but may also be checked in early through Destiny Discover! 

    Library staff is available to help you with your resource needs, so please see one of us for any special need!

     

    Lost or Damaged Materials:
    Fines for materials, lost or damaged beyond use, will include the replacement cost of the item(s). Charges for damaged materials will be determined by the library staff depending on the nature and severity of the damages.
