We are here to help you find the information you need for research and school assignments. We can help you find books to read for pleasure.  Please ask us for help anytime!

 

  • We have over 24,000 books, audio books, videos, DVDs and magazines, which can be checked out for two weeks and renewed as needed.
  • Students may check out books with their student ID number or student ID card.
  • Students are welcome to request books to add to the collection.  Checked out books may be put on hold and saved at the circulation desk.
  • Students are responsible for returning or renewing their library books on time. Consequences for unreturned books may include missing school social events, and students will not receive their diploma or next year’s class schedule until cleared.  
  • The library supports a variety of databases. Find a description of our databases and passwords in the student organizer/planner or use the Library Databases tab on the right for the most updated list.
  • We have 36 Dell computers in our lab and six Macintosh computers in our three study rooms.
  • Students have access to three black and white printers/photocopiers, which are located next to the circulation desk and the low bookshelves at the front of the library. There is no charge for printing.
  • Textbooks are available in the library from all departments on campus. The textbooks remain in the library at all times and are located in the front, right side of the library in the short bookshelves.
  • Three study rooms can be reserved by request to the library staff  for students to work on group projects or to practice presentations.  Up to five students are permitted in each room.
  • Absolutely no food is allowed in the library.  Water is permitted away from the computers.
