Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Do I need a pass to come to the library?
Last Updated: 9/30/16
Students may use the library during the school day with a library pass, an agenda pass, or an official school pass. A pass is required to use the library during lunch periods. We also require passes after 2:15 each day.
Are food and drinks permitted?
Food and drinks, including water not in a spill-proof bottle, are not allowed and must be checked just inside the door on the small tables installed for that purpose.
How much does it cost to print?
A black & white printer is networked to all computers. Each page costs $0.05. Using "print preview" will ensure that you do not print out unneeded pages; you must pay for all of the pages you print or you will receive none.
A color printer is also now available. This printer is not networked to any student computers. Each side costs $0.25. Plan ahead - you must email your document to a member of the library staff to print for you.
How many items may I check out?
Students without fines and overdues may check out five items at a time for up to two weeks, and may renew throughout the school year as long as no one else has placed a hold on those items.
What may I check out?
Students may check out any book or audiobook on the shelves and displays. Back issues of magazines may also be checked out, but not current issues. There is no Reference section.
NOTE: The library does not control what selections students make. If a parent wants to limit his/her child's selections in any way, that is between the parent and child. The library will not place any restrictions on a student's selections that have nothing to do with the circulation policy (see previous question).
Somebody has checked out the book I want. Now what?
See a member of the library staff to place an electronic hold or log into the Destiny catalog using your SLMS login information.
