STUDENT SERVICES IN THE LIBRARY

Good news! The library has textbooks for use inside the library. This service is available before school or during an open lunch. If you need to catch up on an assignment while your book is still missing and you are arranging payment or replacement, look for the textbook loan cart inside the library on the far side of the counter.

Project Help-Station We also have tools for you to use as you do your homework; 3-hole punch, stapler, scissors, pencil sharpener or some paper.
