Library Info & FAQ
How am I able to come to the library?
Students must have an eHallpass to come to the library (even if you are on your lunch or release) and must check in with Ms. Rivera. Passes are not needed before and after school.
What do I need to check out books (or any other items)?
You need your student ID or you need to know your student ID number. Your library account needs to be clear, with no overdue books or fines.
How many items can I check out?
You can have up to 10 books checked out at a time and 3 DVDs.
How long can I have the items I checked out?
The loan period for books is 3 weeks and for DVDs/AudioCDs it is 1 week. You will receive the due date when you check out a book.
Where do I return my book?
Library materials may be turned in to the “Book Return” in the hallway next to the library entrance, the book deposit just outside of the Library Media Center Office, or inside the library at the north end of the circulation desk. Watch this video to see where these book returns are located.
What if my book is past due?
If your book is past due or late, you can come in and renew the book (you must bring the book with you to renew it). SORA ebooks and audiobooks automatically are returned from your account on the due date.
What if I lose or damage my book or other items?
Unfortunately, if you lose or badly damage a library book/item you will be responsible for the cost of it. (Do not check out books for other people, if they lose it or damage it the only person I will have on record for being responsible for it is YOU.) Lost or damaged book fines go to your Infinite Campus account if they are not rectified before the end of the school year.
What type of technology is available for me to use?
Students may use iPads, zSpace 3D machine, Mac Video Editing Desktop, eReaders, Promethean board, video and still cameras.
May I take technology home with me?
Students may check out eReaders for short-term use IF you have a parent permission form filled out, signed, and verified. Please see Ms. Rivera at the circ desk to get a form if you are interested in this option. Completed forms are kept on file for the remainder of the school year. Technology checkouts are short-term, meaning 1-2 days at a time. This ensures that all students have access to devices when they need them.
Can I eat in the library?
No, food is not allowed in the library! You may have a beverage with you as long as it has a lid.
Battle of the Books
Welcome to a fun & learning intensive experience! BOB is a statewide reading challenge. Students read books deeply so that they retain information about plot, character, theme, setting, and other elements.

What Should I Read Next?
TasteDive is a great site for both book and author recommendations, along with other forms of entertainment. Just enter the title of your favorite book or your favorite author, and TasteDive will generate its recommendations!
Whichbook is a site that offers up suggestions based on specific characteristics rather than similar books – you can make your choices based on the mood of the book, using a series of sliders: Happy to Sad, Funny to Serious, Safe to Disturbing, and so forth. Drag up to four sliders around to make your selection for each characteristic of the book, and WhichBook will offer up a long list of recommendations. You can also opt for making your selection based on specifics regarding character, plot, and setting.
Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers and book recommendations. Our mission is to help people find and share books they love. If you’re looking for a place to discover a great book or to discuss your favorite books with a community of readers, you’ve found the right place!
