Opening Hours

We are open *most* days as follows:

Monday to Thursday: 7:45 - 4:00 | Friday: 7:45 - 3:15

*Ms. McCoy and Ms. Hurst volunteer their time to open the library before and after school; as such, circumstances may sometimes prevent them from being there. Watch for signs to indicate changes to our usual opening and closing times.*

Food & Drink

No one likes a mouldy book, sticky table-top, or stained carpet.

As such, food and drink (other than water) are NOT permitted in the library.

Thank you for helping us to keep our shared space clean!

How to Place a Hold

  • Click on the Find a Book button, above.

  • Search for a book by subject, title, or author.

  • Once you find a book that you would like to check out, you will place a hold on the book. To do so:

      • click on the arrow on the right

      • Click on the hold icon (upper right, the book with a hand over it)

      • You will be prompted to enter a username and password:

          • your username is your student number (no ‘S’)

          • your password is your last name (all lower case, no capital letters)

    • Then click ‘Place Hold

    • You’re done! A member of our library team will contact you by email with instructions for picking up and later returning your book.

  • Remember: you can sign out up to 3 books at a time, and can keep each book for a 3-week loan.

Due Dates

  • The due date is stamped in the back of the book that you sign out. The regular due date is three weeks from the date you sign out the book.

  • Make sure you put a reminder in your calendar to return or renew the book before the due date.
