About Our Library 2017-06-07T14:02:38+00:00

The library has the crucial resources you will need to succeed in school:
  • Resources – we have a wide range of information resources right in the library, including books, reference materials, educational videos and DVDs, and more. To search for materials that are found in the library, check out our online catalogue. Students also have access to a wide range of online resources, including research databases.
  • Research assistance – your librarian can help you find what you need for school projects, whether it’s in a book or on the Internet, and teach you how to research more effectively.
  • Fun stuff – check out our collection of magazines, novels, comic books, manga, books on CD, and more!
  • Study space – come in to study, work quietly on group projects, use the computers, or just relax and read.
Below you will find out a little bit more about us…including our Mission, our regular library Hours, and our Policies regarding borrowing periods, library fines, and food in the library.

    use of print and online resources;

Hours

The library is open every day from 8:00am – 3:00pm.
Occasionally we have to close early due to staff meetings, etc. but we will always post this information on the library doors.

Policies

There are three main rules in the library:
  1. No food or drinks (only water, in a closed container, is okay)
  2. Be in uniform (no coats please)
  3. Be respectful of the space and the people in it.
Other things you might want to know:
  • you may sign out up to 4 items at a time, but only 2 on the same topic

  • books & audiobooks are signed out for 2 weeks; everything else is overnight loan
  • fines are $0.25 per day, per item!
    • but remember, you can renew, so you should never have to pay library fines!
