    • There is no limit to the number of books that students can borrow. Students are encouraged to check out as many books as they can read within a two week period. 
    • Books are checked out for two weeks; students must return or renew books before they are due to avoid overdue fines
    • There is no limit to the number of books and materials teachers may check out (depending on availability)
    • DVDs and equipment are for Teacher Check out only. Students may borrow DVD's for use in the library only. Please let any library staff know if you need a DVD at least 3 days before you need it.
    • Magazines and comic books are available for check out.
    • Please check out all materials before you take them out of the library.
     
    Library Use:
    • For teachers: If you want to reserve the library for orientation, class book check outs, research or other projects, and  meetings, please see or email the librarian, Mrs. Verdin rverdin@houstonisd.org 
    • To view library availability online, please visit the Library Calendar. The online library calendar has an updated list of classes/teachers scheduled to visit the library.
    • Students going to the library MUST have a library pass/permit and an ID - this includes office workers. Only students with permits and IDs are allowed in the library during school hours.
    • Depending on how many students/classes/clubs are in the library, we might limit the number of students in the library. Once we reach our maximum occupancy, you might not be able to come in the library. This is also true for lunch period.
    • Students who have Off campus passes MUST be off campus. If a student want to come to the library during their Off Campus period, they MUST have their off campus pass, ID, be in uniform and have an assignment to work on. 
    • Cell phones can be used as educational tools - do not use them just for social media or texting. Students may NOT use phones during the school day. You may use your cell phone in the library, during lunch or when part of a class activity. If use of a device is disturbing other students or staff, students will be asked to put them away or use their device outside of the library. 
    Computer Use Rules
    Library computers may only be used for school related work. Students must have a pass from the teacher.
    • No software/games downloads 
    • Please follow Acceptable Use Policy and observe Appropriate Online Behavior.
    • Educational games only 
    • Printing is FREE as long as it is for school work. 
    • Do not print web pages; copy and paste on to a word document (because we love trees and the environment!)
    • Do not change computer settings (as mentioned above, if you change settings, do not complain about how slow the computers are)
    • Food and drink only in the cafe or designated area. Please clean up after ourselves.
     
    Library Rule:  "Treat everyone as you want to be treated."
     
     
    Students should follow computer usage rules so that they may continue to have computer privileges.
               We do not shush people but remember: Be congenial. Be courteous. Be considerate.
