General Information

The library provides students with a variety of services ranging from computer use and book checkout to research and printing. We offer select school supplies year-round for a small fee. Students may come in to work on projects, research, homework or classwork, provided they have a pass from a teacher.


A fine of 10¢ a day will be assessed for every day the book is late (please note the due date card in the back pocket of each library book). The due date is the LAST date you see on the card! *Some books are "OVERNIGHT" books and are checked out for one day only.  These books have an "OVERNIGHT" sticker on the front cover, and the due date is stamped in RED.  These fines are 10¢ per class PERIOD.*


Printing for school use is free up to 5 pages as long as the pages are for school use (homework or an assignment). Any printing for personal use is 25¢ per page payable at the time printing is complete.
