Do you have an I.D. card? Come to the library, we can print a new one for you. $5 if you lost the first one, FREE if you never got an ID card (new students, recent transfers).
TEXTBOOKS: All students had an opportunity to come through the library with their English teachers the August 18 - 22 to get textbooks, but if you still need a book, please come to the library with your schedule and/or ID and we will be sure you have what you need.
If you cannot pay the fine now, we will work something out, but you must have textbooks in your core academic classes.
Students new to TVUSD must first log onto a school computer and make up a new password. Use your student ID as the user name (add 00s if it is less than 10 digits). THE FIRST TIME LOGGING IN ONLY use your birthdate in 8 digits as the password. For example, if your birthday is January 12, 1999, the temporary password would be 01121999.
As soon as you log in , a red x will come up -- click OK and make up a new password for the year.
Students who were in TVUSD last year may use the same password they used last year.
All students, log onto your school email through this link:
Your student ID# (add 00s if it is a short one, must be 10 digits long) is the user name, your new password is the password (NOT your birthday!)

How to Check Out a Library Book
1. To check out a library or textbook, use your current CHS I.D. card, or a parent may check out books for you.
2. Library books are due in two weeks, but can be renewed for another two weeks, unless another student has requested the book.
3. You may check out two novels at a time (in addition to whatever core literature you are reading in class). You may also check out up to five nonfiction (information) books at a time, but just one on each topic.
4. If a book you need is checked out by someone else, ask us to put a "hold" on it, and you will be the next person to check it out.
5. Overdue library books must be returned and fines paid before checking out new books -- checking out library books is a privilege.
