Library Services
Students may come to the library to use the computers, checkout materials, or work. The library offers a bank of MAC computers for quick question research or looking up library materials in the catalog. There is also a set of lab computers available for longer term research and word processing. There is a lounge, complete with comfy sofas for reading, studying and meeting with fellow students. Digital scanners, a copy machine, and black and white or color laser printers are also available for students needing printing services.   Color copies/printing are $0.25 per page.

Teachers may come to the library for any of the same services for students. Teachers also have access to our extensive collection of videos and DVDs, supplementary resources and teacher materials.
 
Library Materials Checkout Policies
Students may checkout up to 5 items for 3 weeks at a time. Renewals include an additional 3 weeks beyond the original due date. There is no late fee for returning books past their due date so please be responsible and return them on time for others to use.
 
Your current student photo ID card serves as your library card. It is required to check out any library book, textbook or other class material.
 
If you lose your student ID card, you can go to the Financial Office to pay $5.00 for a replacement and then come to the Library Circulation Desk during lunch to have your new ID card printed.
 
Textbook Materials Checkout Policies
As soon as you are finished using a textbook, or your teacher says you are finished using a textbook, please return it to the Circulation Desk before school, during lunch or after school as another student may need it.
 
Always bring your ID card to the library.

Lost Books and Fees
When a student loses or damages materials, such as textbooks and/or library books, there are FOUR ways to make up for the loss:

1.  The student can pay for the materials.
2.  The student can replace the EXACT item by purchasing online searching by specific ISBN number.
3.  Make a monthly (reasonable) payment plan.
4.  The student can perform service to the school library in lieu of paying money.  "Wages" are set at current California minimum wage rate of $10.50 per hour.
 
All textbooks, calculators, and library books are due on or before the last day of school.
