Minimum Days - When school is dismissed early the library will be closed to students 20 minutes after school dismissal time.

  • Be actively involved in QUIET STUDY (computers, homework, or reading).
  • NO electronic devices (phones, I-PODS) should been seen or heard.
  • A picture ID card is required to use the computer and check-out books.
  • Leave food and beverages in your backpacks.
