The library is open for quiet school work during "After Hours" on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 2:10 to 4:00. All students must sign in and stay for the whole time period unless they have a note from a parent to leave earlier.

LIBRARY EXPECTATIONS:

The library is a welcoming place for Raiders to READ, RESEARCH, and RELAX while being RESPECTFUL. Quiet talking is allowed.

  • Passes - A signed planner is needed to enter the library during class periods, unless the student is accompanied by a staff member or with a class.
  • Lunch time - The library is open during lunch most days for relaxing, reading, and computer work. Chess and scrabble boards are available for lunch recess. When a class is in the library for a lesson, the library will be closed during lunch.
  • Sign-in - Students are to sign in at the circulation desk when entering the library, when not with a staff member. This ensures the safety of students.
  • Computers - Students are welcome to use the computers any time during the school day and half an hour before and after school. No permission is needed.
  • Printing and copying - Students are asked to try to keep their printing to 2 - 3 pages. A copy machine is available for students.

CIRCULATION POLICIES:

  • Students may have 5 books checked out at a time. Overdues and book fines count toward the total number of books checked out.
  • Student Requested Books - Students may request a book to be ordered by completing this form or filling out a suggestion sheet in the library. The librarian will make a decision on whether to order the book.
  • Books on Hold - Students may place books on hold if they are currently checked out. If a student has five books out, an available book may be placed on hold for one day to allow the student to turn in books.
  • Book Fines - If a book is lost, a student may pay for the book or purchase a copy of the book (in good condition) and give it to the library. Fines are also charged for damaged books. There are no fines for overdue books.
