In School Library FAQ 4 we asked, “Can I borrow magazines?”

Yes, you can borrow magazines from the school library. We have many magazines to choose from, including many for which we have a regular subscription.

Our most current magazines are on display on the periodical shelves, near the Zen Den. If you flip the display shelves up, you will see back issues that are also available for loan.

In School Library FAQ 3 we asked, “Can I print in the library?”

The short answer is, yes, you can print in the library.


We have a printing station by the front entrance, on your right as you enter the school library. You will need to observe the following procedures:

  1. Wear a mask
  2. Sanitize your hands.
  3. One person at a time. If you are waiting, please wait outside the doors.
  4. You will need to know your district username and password to log on to the computer.
  5. Please have a print-ready document or other item ready to go before you log on. If you still need to work on something, please do it on a different computer.
  6. Log off when you are finished.
  7. Sanitize the key board and mouse. There will be a spray bottle of sanitizer and paper towels nearby. Spray a towel with the sanitizer (do not soak the towel and do not spray directly onto the equipment.) Gently wipe down any surfaces you used.

Please be responsible with your printing choices. Before printing, we ask that you consider these questions: Do I really need to print? How do minimize the amount of paper that I use? Are there alternatives to printing that I should consider?

In School Library FAQ 2 we asked, “How do I borrow a book? Where do I go and what do I need?”

When you come to the School Library and find a book that you want to borrow, head to the Circulation Desk. This is the main counter near the front doors. The Teacher Librarian or another member of the Library Team will be there to assist you– if nobody is there, you will need to say (in a LOUD voice), “I need help!” You might need to continue to ask for help until a Library Team member comes to the desk to assist you.

When directed to do so, you will use the self-checkout station to scan your library card (student id card.) Then you will scan the library barcode on the book. If everything is in order, congratulations, you have successfully borrowed the book!

If you have any overdue books, unpaid fines, or if you are over your limit, you won’t be able to borrow any more books until you sort out the issues. If you have questions about any of those things, you will need to talk with the Teacher Librarian.

You have most books and other materials for three weeks. If you still want to keep the book longer than that, you can usually renew the book for as long as you need to.

You can also borrow books without even physically entering the library! Go here to read about how to place holds and even get books delivered to you.
