Students visit the library with classes for activities such as book selection, research projects, and use of technology equipment. With teacher permission, students also have the privilege of visiting the library independently.
Guidelines for Visiting the Library Independently:
Students must obtain an ehallpass (no pass sharing) from their teacher. Upon arrival to the library, students must present the ehallpass to a library staff member and confirm that the pass has been checked in or ended. Passes are valid for one period only. Students must then sign in on the iPad at the circulation desk. Students should remain in the library until the bell rings. In the event that they have been asked to return to class, they must sign out on the iPad and request a return pass. When the bell rings, students must proceed to their next scheduled class.
During the last period of the day, students will not be permitted to leave the library between 2:15 and the last bell.
Student visitors are expected to have a purpose or goal for using the library. Students who become disruptive or are dishonest or abusive of the previously stated guidelines will be sent back to class and may lose independent library privileges.
Lunch & Senior Release passes: Students wishing to use the library during their lunch period may do so on a one-time-use or limited basis. Food is not permitted in the library. Students should request an appointment ehallpass from one of their teachers. Lunch monitors may not provide passes to the library. Students must sign in upon arrival and remain in the library during their lunch period until the bell rings.
Students visiting the library before the morning bell may request an ehallpass from a teacher or morning duty staff member. The library opens at 7:15 AM.
The library has a wide array of fiction, nonfiction and reference books in print, more than thirty magazine and journal subscriptions, newspapers, videos, audio books and eBooks and subscription databases, which are accessible from school and home with a password.
Students also have access to computers in the library, printing and scanning, and the library classroom computer lab, which is connected to the library.
