Library Information

Librarian: Holly McCullough
Library Assistant: Hank Watson
Library hours: 7:00-3:30.

  • Students may come to the library individually with a signed agenda or note from the teacher of record. Teachers may send no more than four students at a time from a given class. Students must sign in and present notes to either Ms. McCullough or Mr. Watson.
  • Fees will not be charged for copies or printouts as long as the materials are school related.
  • Computers are available on a first come first serve basis with priority given to scheduled classes.
  • IPods, Mp3 players, cell phones, etc., are not allowed in the library after 7:25.
  • Overdue book fees will remain in place, but anticipate regular, ‘amnesty days’ when students may return any overdue items without penalty. The first two weeks of school will be amnesty weeks.
  • Students may come to the library during the lunch periods rather than the cafeteria, but food is not allowed in the library.
  • Students may have three books checked out at any given time. They may be checked out for two weeks at a time, but renewable as needed.
  • Food and drink are not allowed in the library unless it is for an afterschool team activity, i.e. Quick Recall matches, Book Club meetings, etc.
  • I encourage the use of the, ‘Wish List’. The Wish List is simply a form in the library for students to list any wishes they have for the library collection. When purchasing, I strive to accommodate as many wishes as possible.
