Something very magical can happen when you read a good book.

~J.K. Rowling

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 come to the library before going to the cafeteria to obtain a pass. Once the student has eaten, they must get their pass signed by a lunch aide and come directly to the library. Students should come prepared with school work, a book to read or ready to engage in some kind of meaningful activity.

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.
