Library Expectations

You are welcome to come into the library to choose books for information and for pleasure. I look forward to helping you in the library. The library is an extension of your classroom. The same expectations apply. 2 books may be checked out for two weeks at a time. You can renew books unless they are requested by others. The more you read, the smarter you'll become. Knowledge is power!
