Library Reminders:

Since school has been in session a few weeks now, students will be having overdue books. Please help students remember that books are checked out for two-week periods. After two weeks, books are considered "overdue," and students will need to get them renewed for two additional weeks.


Also, please bring any stray textbooks and/or library books that you find to the library. Many students come in the library frantically looking for books they have misplaced. If they have been turned in to us, that is very helpful.

Looking for something new to read? Check out these book lists!
