The Library's Mission

The Educational Technology and Library Department's mission is to promote critical thinking, creativity, communication, collaboration, and information literacy through the use of analog and digital texts and technology used by students and teachers in blended learning and virtual environments.

Borrowing Policy

Students are encouraged to borrow books from the library for school and for fun. Students can keep library books in their lockers or take them home.

Students may check out up to five books at a time. The borrowing period is three weeks. Books must be returned or renewed by the due date. Students will not be charged for overdue materials but will be expected to pay for lost or damaged materials. Extremely overdue books will result in notices sent home or attached to reports cards.
