Scholastic Book Fair Donations
Thank you to the generous donations of faculty and staff toward the book fair. The pictures below show just how many books we were able to purchase for the library!
Facts on File Databases
New this year to the library are Facts on File databases and World Book Online. These encyclopedias and databases were chosen by your teachers and librarian to bring current information, videos, and resources to you any time you need them! This means if you are working on that term paper at home, just log into Facts on File or World Book Online for the facts, figures, and details you need--anytime.
Check the Parents and Students Resources section below for information on how you log into the new databases, click the links below to access these tools using the username and password that was supplied to you during library orientation. Happy researching! Still have questions? Check out this PowerPoint to help you through the process!
Book Borrowing Policy
The high school library reflects the building population with print materials that are available for students in grades seven through twelve. Books are evaluated for appropriateness using Booklist Online, a service of the American Library Association. Books are given an age range when they are reviewed. That being said, a book that is listed for students in grades 10-12 will not be available for students in lower grades without prior parent approval.
While libraries seek equal access to information for all, it is my belief that the best judge of what information a child consumes rests with the parent or guardian. If you have any questions on this policy, please do not hesitate to contact me.
