Question of the Week
Do novelists consciously place symbolism in their novels? The question of the week is a survey sponsored by the Puma Readers club. We do a drawing for prizes from the responses, and publish our favorite answers on the Puma Readers web page. Yes, you're right, it's a sneaky way to get you involved in the Puma Readers club! One enterprising student went straight to the source and surveyed writers. Some of the answers he got can be found in this article: Famous Novelists on Symbolism. But what do YOU think? Vote in the library!
p.s. my favorite answer to this one was "do your own paper, young man" from Kantor.

Do you need 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). The ID "lost and found" is in the library, maybe yours is there waiting for you!
HOW TO PAY A FINE online with a credit card. You may pay a library or textbook fine through the bookkeeper web site, BUT BE SURE TO PRINT OUT YOUR RECEIPT AND BRING IT IN TO THE LIBRARY SO THAT WE KNOW THAT YOU PAID! (the two websites are not connected. The directions are here.
WELCOME TO THE LIBRARY!
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.
Textbook checkout policies are on the Textbook page.
