Library Objective: To provide a rich learning environment, encourage academic excellence, and foster the love of reading for lifelong learning.
Student Checkouts: Students are allowed to check out 2 books at a time. Books are due 2 weeks from date of checkout.

Students will also not be allowed to checkout any other books from the library until the fine is paid.
