Classes in the library- English teachers bring their students to the library to check books out. All subject area teachers may book time in the library for research projects.

Lunch passes- Lunch passes are available to all students during lunch periods. Students must sign up for a lunch pass through the “LUNCH PASSES” tab at the top of this website. Students should come prepared with school work, a book to read or ready to engage in some kind of meaningful activity while in the library during their lunch period.

Inter Library Loans- If our library does not have a book that a student is looking for, we can request it from another school in the district. Students also have the ability to borrow books from other schools in Orange County through the OU BOCES Library System.

Please feel free to contact the library staff with any questions you may have.
