Library Media Services

The school library is a state of the art facility offering services in the print, non-print and computer areas. The library is open daily from 7:15 AM until 4:00 PM. The main purpose of the library is reading, research, and study. Therefore, the library at all times should be quiet and orderly enough so that all who are there can read or study undisturbed. Thoughtful consideration for others will help everyone use the library successfully.

Students may go to the library from a study hall or from lunch. A pass from a study hall teacher or cafeteria teacher must be obtained to be admitted. Students must remain in the library for the remainder of the period. Students from subject classes may go to the library only with a pass from that teacher.

Library materials must be checked out at the circulation desk before leaving the library. The student ID card should be used.

Students using the computer terminals in the library must sign in to a particular carrel/terminal and accept responsibility for that station during the period.
