Textbook Checkouts 2015
English teachers brought their classes through the library the week of August 17 - 21. Students were able to check out their core lit novels, literature anthologies, and pick up any textbooks they still need.
New students and students who have changed classes may come to the library before school, lunch, after school, or during class on a pass to check out their textbooks. Textbooks will not be denied due to fines or lost books. However, we do ask students to return last year's textbooks from home before checking out this year's books because other students are waiting for those books!
If you do not yet have a school I.D. you may use your schedule to check out textbooks until the next ID picture day.
I.D. PICTURE MAKE-UP DAY is THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 3rd, in the 400 pod.

LIBRARY RULES and PROCEDURES
1. The library is a quiet place to read or study.
2. No food, drink, candy, or gum in the library, not even water.
3. Computers are for school business only. You may print 5 pages free from library computers if it is school-related.
4. During class, you need a pass to stay in the library. Stop at the desk to make sure there is room for you, then sign in.
5. You need a current CHS ID card to check out books.
SAFETY FIRST in the library. Know where the exits are in case of a fire. Please do not block aisles by moving chairs (just 4 chairs to a table), keep backpacks and feet under the tables.
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 three weeks, but can be renewed 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.
