LIBRARY POLICIES

LIBRARY PROCEDURES

Student Procedures 

  • Unless accompanied by a teacher with a class, all students must sign in as they enter the library. 

 

  • Students are free to come to the library before school (librarian usually in early), at designated lunch period (see individual schools for lunch lists), after school on Tu/Wed/Thurs, or with a pass from a teacher during class time. 

 

  • If there is a “Library Closed” sign, students must return to classroom or lunchroom.

 

  • Food and drink must be kept to designated area. 

 

  • Students may check out 5 items at a time for a period of 2 weeks. 

  • There are no late fees, but failure to return overdue books for 6 weeks will result in a “lost” fee of $5 or one period of library community service. 

 

  • Students will sign in to use computers and use them according to school computer use policies. Computer priority will be given to educational use and student projects. 

 

  • Students must respect the library as a safe space and treat peers, librarian, and library with care and respect. 

 

Teacher Procedures

 

 

  • Please do not send classes to the library unaccompanied or without a scheduled appointment.

 

  • Teachers may send 1-3 students with passes to the library to check out books or work on research or other projects during class time without scheduling prior. 

 

  • Teachers may arrange in advance to send various small groups of students to the library for project work.

 

  • Planning ahead and collaborating with the librarian on research projects has the best results! Let’s talk in advance about what you want to accomplish in the library.
