Please help us keep the library a good place to study and read by observing these rules:
- Do not eat in the library! Bottled water is permitted at the study tables.
- Eating during lunch is allowed provided students clean up after themselves and only eat at a table in the central part of the Library. If the Library is left messy, the Library may be closed to eating as a consequence for a period of days.
- Silence cell phones and take calls outside.
- Be respectful of all library users, including classes. Keep voices low.
Ink cartridges and paper are expensive items. To keep costs down, we ask that students print only what they need for school work. Personal printing should be done at home.
Please highlight the sections of articles you need and print only those selections. Complete directions are on each monitor.
Print one copy of your paper only. If you need multiple copies for class, you must use the photocopier ($.10/page). Ask the Librarian to assist you with the photocopier.
Checkout and Renewal Procedure
We have a generous checkout policy.
- Books may be checked out for three weeks and may be renewed unless the book has been placed on hold by another student.
- Students who receive three overdue notices for the same book will be assigned detention.
- At the end of each quarter and semester, students who have not returned library materials (including books, reference materials, textbooks and copier IOUs) may receive unsatisfactory citizenship grades and may become ineligible for extracurricular activities.
- Seniors with library materials outstanding will have transcripts and diplomas held until clear.
Textbooks in the Library
You may check out a textbook to use in the library for one period only. Sign out the book using book bar code number at the desk. Copies are limited and your choice may not always be available.

- Whole classes or small groups of students previously scheduled by their teacher
