Teachers: Library sign-ups are on a first come, first served basis, so please contact Ms. DeGroat at least one week ahead of time if you’d like to schedule a library visit for your class/classes. To see what times have already been scheduled by other teachers, please check the library calendar.

Students: You’re invited to visit the library before or after school, during study hall or lunch, and with permission from a teacher during class. Please respect others by maintaining a quiet study-friendly environment and stepping into the commons if you’d like to chat with friends, eat, drink, or use your cell phone (at times when cell phone use is allowed in the building).

Keep in mind that classes in the library have precedence for computer use. To see if a class will be in the library during your independent study block, please check the library calendar.
