All students have access to the Media Center via teacher scheduled class time for research and/or book exchange; independent visits upon entering, leaving school; passes from the cafeteria; and individual or small group passes from a classroom.
Students may borrow up to 2 books for 2 weeks. Magazines have a 1-week borrow date. Some Reference books can be borrowed for one day (overnight). Students may not borrow anything if they have an overdue item.
Students receive overdue notices every few weeks and may not checkout any materials if they have an outstanding account. Any questions or concerns should be directed to the library staff. Students have three ways to take care of lost or damaged books:
Work it off by reading. See the library staff for details and expectations.
Replace the book with a new one.
Pay for the replacement value of the book.
We welcome student projects for display. Ask the library staff for more information.
(All students visit the library every two weeks with their L. Arts classes)
