Policies

    • Students may check out two books for two weeks.
    • A student with an overdue book cannot check out any more books until the overdue book is returned or renewed.
    • A student with a lost or damaged book cannot check out any more books until the book has been replaced or paid for.
    • Students who are unable to check out books can still borrow books from the library's non-cataloged collection of weeded titles or from teachers' classroom collections.
    • Students must have passes/signed planners to come to the Library Media Center before/during school.
    • Computers are available before and after school for class research and assignments.
    • Students may use the Internet for assigned work only.
    • Students may print in the media center lab, but only with prior permission.
    • Students cannot come to the library during lunch unless given prior permission and a pass from Mr. Hunt or Mr. Scott.

Hours of Operation

  • Library Open - starting at 7:45 AM every morning. May be subject to change without warning.

    As morning Media Center time is used for reading, studying, research, and collaboration, students' volume and behavior should contribute to that goal. Computers must be used for academic purposes. Noisy and/or academically-unoccupied students in the morning will be relocated to a space more suited to their activities. Student capacity is limited and subject to change without warning.

    Afternoons - closed at 3:30 Monday-Thursday, at 3:00 on Fridays.

Checkout Policy

  • During the school year, students can check out 2 books for a maximum of 2 weeks. Both books can be from the same author or series.

    No new books can be checked out if a book is overdue, lost, or damaged. The problem must be fixed before a student can check out any new books. Students blocked from checking out books should see Mr. Hunt to resolve their issue.
