Our Mission:

The mission of the secondary library is to provide a learning environment for students and teachers so they can seek information, develop and share projects, read for pleasure and assignments, study alone or in a group and meet as a group for special programs. Further, the library seeks to ensure that our students acquire the necessary information literacy skills to become productive learners and lead successful, meaningful lives with an eternal perspective.

Library Policies:

7:40 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Monday - Friday

Students may check out a maximum of two books for two weeks at a time. For each day that the book is overdue, the student will be charged a late fee of ten cents until it is returned. Students will be charged replacement cost for lost or damaged books.

No food, gum, drinks or cell phones allowed in the library.

Copies are ten cents a page.

Students using computers in the library need to observe the policies that are stated on the Internet User Agreement that was signed at the beginning of the year.
