Library Resources

  • Our Library has an extensive collection of novels, across many genres and reading levels, if you are looking for something interesting to read, or if your English teacher asks you to work on an independent novel study. We also have a collection of graphic novels.
  • About half of our book collection is non-fiction books, which are useful when writing essays or working on projects.
  • We have desktop and laptop computers that teachers can book for their classes, and students are welcome to use the desktops at lunch.
  • Students can print documents in the Library. (Student laptops provided by the board do not have printing capability, but you can save your document and log in on a Library computer to print it here.)
  • We subscribe to NoodleTools, which is an online tool that students can use to help create a bibliography or list of works cited.
  • The Library is often available to senior students on spare who are looking for a quiet place to work.

 

Library Book Loans

  • Library books are signed out for 2 weeks at a time, and can be renewed (in 2-week increments) if still needed for a course, unless another patron has placed a hold on the book.
  • Library books can be returned by placing them in the book bin in the hall outside the Library, or in the slot in the Library circulation desk.
  • Late fines will not be charged as long as books are returned in good condition.
  • Library patrons will be required to pay the full replacement cost of any books not returned by the end of the semester, or books that are damaged.
