Library Policies and Procedures

We encourage all students to take proper care of all books and materials taken from the library.

All students need to be responsible borrowers and to return their books to the library on their due dates.

If you would like to keep a book after the due date, you may renew it.


If you have an overdue book, please return it to the library as soon as you can. However, you are not allowed to check out another book until that one is returned.


In your backpack, in your classroom, in your bedroom, under your bed, in your bookcase, throughout your whole house.

If your book is lost or deemed unusable, you can pay for it. Just ask for the price.

Overdue slips will be sent home periodically, if a student forgets his/her library book.

Effective Tips for Online Searching

Be Specific | Tell the search engine exactly what you're looking for. For example, if you're looking for a recipe for chocolate chip cookies, type chocolate chip cookie recipe instead of cookie recipes.

Using Quotation Marks | When you put your search terms in quotation marks, it's called a "phrase search." The search engine will give you pages that have the terms in the exact order of the words in quotations. For example, if you're looking specifically for a biography on John Quincy Adams, enter "John Quincy Adams" and see what comes up.
