“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.” ― Jorge Luis Borges

Library Guidelines and Procedures

Library Guidelines and Procedures


                The library is a place to read, check out materials, take tests, work on projects and be creative!  It is a place where learning takes place!

·      Be respectful of others – Say please and Thank you!

·      Put chairs back before you leave

·      Leave the library looking better than when you came! Recycle water bottles and throw away wrappers.

·      Ask questions and help each other out!

·      Remember to bring your books back! And be respectful of your books (Somebody else wants to read your book too!)

·      Be creative and work hard! Have fun!

·      And READ!

Circulation Guidelines and Procedures

Circulation of Books


·      As long as you have no overdues, you may checkout what you want.

·      Books are checked out for 3 weeks; you may renew a book one time

·      You may request a book or place it on hold

·      If we don’t have it you may request an interlibrary-loan. Interlibrary loans MUST be returned on time. If you have overdues we will not place a loan.
