Expected Behavior

The library is a shared space. Students, teachers, and other members of the school community all work in the library and use the resources we provide. This is the basis for the library's policies. Please treat all others in the library with respect and consideration for their needs as well as your own.


Please:

Do not bring food, drinks, or gum into the library.

Work quietly.

Handle books, magazines, and equipment carefully.

Follow all school rules.

Ask before you act.


When you come with a class for research or other lessons, these additional rules apply:

Listen attentively.

Raise your hand before answering a question.

Ask questions when you don't understand.


Students may come to the library to work on assignments independently or in quiet groups, to get research help or reading advice from Mrs. Krauze, to borrow and return books, to read, or to participate in library programs and activities. Any student who does not demonstrate appropriate library behavior after a warning may be asked to leave.
