LHS Library News

Here's what's happening at the Lincoln High School Library

2nd Quarter 2015/16

Happy New Year!

It's hard to believe it is almost February. The school year is just flying by and second semester is always a busy time at LHS. With this in mind, we'd like to remind students of the importance of staying on task with class assignments. Keep in mind that the library staff is here to help with research, book selection, and technology needs.

Some Friendly Reminders . . .

Please note that passes are required when visiting the library during class time. The library is closed each day during advisory period and first lunch on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. We are open after school on Mondays and Wednesdays, except the first Wednesday of every month when the librarians attend faculty meetings.

Attention Exhibition Students:

Remember to use the online toolkit to help guide you through your research. Click here to access this LiveBinder full of useful resources!
