Today’s learners cannot imagine life without the internet and supporting technology. The concept of the traditional library is changing to include technology, online tools and spaces for collaboration and exploration.​​​

Borrowing Expectations

All library materials need to be treated respectfully. In the event that materials that were borrowed are damaged or lost, they will need to be replaced or paid for by the borrower.

  • Students are allowed to take books out for two weeks - The number of books they’re allowed to borrow is determined by their teacher.  Borrowing time is also determined by the classroom teacher. Students needing books for research projects are permitted to borrow for up to one month. Students with overdue items are required to return them before borrowing more.
  • Unless an item is new or on hold for another student, renewals are allowed. Students can put items on hold.
