Checking out Items

  • As long a student's photo is in the library system (photos are taken at fall registration), students can check out items by providing their name/ID number. If a student's picture is not in the system, a student ID or other photo ID is needed to check out items. 
  • Students may check out up to 10 items; most can be kept for 2 weeks with a 3-day grace period. A few items are overnight checkout only. All items checked out from the library are stamped with a due date, and students can view their library account details online (Patron ID = student ID number; PIN - last 4 digits of student ID number)
  • Items may be renewed up to 3 times as long as no one else has the item reserved.


Etiquette

  • All food should be kept in the Commons and Cafeteria areas. Drinks with secure lids are allowed in the library.
  • Computers are for educational use; due to bandwidth limits, playing Internet games or downloading is not permitted. 
  • Cell phones are ok, but they should be silenced while in the library and extended calls should take place in the area outside the main library entrance. 
  • Students are welcome to listen to mp3 players (with headphones) while studying or working independently in the library as long as the music can't be heard by others.


Fines

  • Fine amounts are set by the district and consistent across all Jeffco High Schools. Student checkout privileges are temporarily suspended if overdue/lost fees reach $10 or more.
  • Yearbooks may be held at the end of the year until overdue/lost fees are taken care of.
  • Lost Items: Lost items are billed at the replacement cost of the item.
