When you need to use a computer, make a copy, or check out a book, stop by the library.  There are over 20 computers available before and after school and approximately 19,000 books available for your use! Many popular series titles are available and suggestions for new books are always welcomed. 

Students may check out 2 books at a time for 2 weeks as long as they have no overdue books or fines.  Fines are assessed at $0.10 per school day after the due date and accumulate daily until the book is returned.  Students are reminded of overdue materials via email or by notice.  If a book is lost or damaged, the student is responsible for the cost of the book; late fees are waived upon payment for the book. 

Audio books, playaways, MP3 players (loaded with popular titles), Sony ebook readers (loaded with popular titles), Flip cameras, Nintendo DS systems and games are all available for students to use.  Students must sign a responsibility form before checking out some of these items.  

School supplies are available for students to purchase including posters, blue books, folders, spirals, binders, and paper.

Students can print from any computer in the library to the library printer.  There is no charge for printing school work, however students should manage the number of pages they print.  No tree killers, please. Personal printing costs $0.10 per page...this includes lyrics, guitar chords, invitations, fliers, etc. that are not for a class assignment.  The printer in the library only prints in black and white, color printers are available in some of the CTE classrooms. 

The acceptable use policy in the student handbook gives rules and regulations for students using the school computers.  If a student is found using a proxy server to access inappropriate sites, they may lose computer access privileges for as long as the entire school year.  

A library Facebook Page (B.F. Terry Library) has been set up.  You will find book trailers (like movie trailers but these are for books) and library information here. 

Library pages have been set up (on the left tool bar) that include all of our resources.  If something you need is not here, send an email (rose@lcisd.org ) or stop by the library for assistance. 

The library is a very popular area of the school and all students are invited to use the computers, look at magazines, check out books or just hang out with friends and do homework. 

If you need to do research, click on Student Resources on the left to go to the databases.  If you need to find a book in the library click on Library Catalogs

 

"If words remain words and sit quietly on the page, if they remain nouns and verbs and adjectives, then we are truly blind. But if words seem to disappear and our innermost self begins to laugh and cry, to sing and dance and finally to fly...if we are transformed in all that we are, to a brand new world, then and only then can we read."-Joe Wayman
