The Mission of the Library
The mission of the school library program is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information; students are empowered to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, skillful researchers, and ethical users of information.
Checking Out Books
Books are checked out for two weeks.
You may renew the book for two more weeks by bringing it in to the library.
If you lose a book, you will be asked to pay for it.
Sharing is nice but return your library books and let your friends check it them out in their own names.
Do not check out a book for a friend (this never works out).
And always return the book in the same condition you found it on the shelf.
You may take up to five books. Seniors may take more if working on research.
Checking Out Playaways
Playaways go out for two weeks. Notes that these are expensive resources and you are responsible for them ($50-$70).
Checking Out Nooks
Nooks go out to Renaissance Scholars for two weeks. You can bring it in to renew it for two more weeks. You must be a Renaissance Scholar to borrow a Nook.
Checking Out an IPAD
Anyone may use a library IPAD in the library or with a teacher in a classroom.
