WELCOME TO YOUR LIBRARY!
You will find everything you need for your class projects. Visit our online research database and learn
a new skill or find a great book to curl up and read!
Please feel free to call us, email us, or come talk to us in person if you need any assistance in the library.
We really are here to help and we really are friendly! We just look scary in that photo below.
Notices for overdue library materials or materials being held for students in the library are given to English teachers to distribute to students. You may also receive a notice from another school. Students should ask to renew the book if they need more time with it or return it immediately. Check with library staff as soon as you can if you receive a notice.
$$$ Late Fees $$$
Late fees are $.10/day for overdue books.
Maximum Number of Books and Audio Books
With the exception of reference books, textbooks and magazines, students may check out two (2) library books at a time and one (1) Audio Book. You may checkout as many textbooks as required for your classes.
Maximum Checkout Time
Students have a whole month to read or listen to their library books! WOO HOO! Now remember, we will stamp the due date in the card pocket on the inside of the library book. Any book may be renewed unless it has been requested by another student or teacher.
Textbooks are not due until the end of the school year or semester if a student is graduating early.
If a student is no longer going to be attending North High, all materials and books are due at the time that they are exiting North High.
If a student is attending another school in the USD 259 School District, and has books that belong to North High, they may take the books to the library at the school they attend. The library staff there will send the books back to the North High Library. When we receive those books, we will waive the fees.
If a book is checked out, we would be very happy to put it on hold for you. Yea us!
Please return library materials on or before the due date so that others may have an opportunity to enjoy it too. We ask that computers and other materials (not books) be personally handed to a library staff member.
Books returned to the library should be placed in the book drop located at the circulation desk or placed in the book return bins located outside the east and west library doors.
Students should personally return all Audiobooks and other library materials checked out for them. Students should never give books or other materials to teachers or other students to return to them. Why, you ask? Well I'll tell ya. It's because each student is personally responsible for the care and return of all library materials and textbooks that they check out.
All library materials are checked out by computer. Proctors are not allowed to check out materials, other than textbooks and library books, for staff or students.
Lost or Damaged Books and Other Materials
Please report lost or damaged materials or books to a library staff member. You may be charged the price of the book or other materials. However, you have the option to replace most of the items with a new one. Let's talk about it!
If a student needs to change or reset their password to get on the computer, please contact one of the library clerks.
We only have the ability to reset or change student passwords.
Students Coming to Work in the Library
Students must have a pass from their teacher in order to come into the library during a class period. Students do not need a pass or need to sign in and out, before school, during lunch, or after school.
First Thing First
When students enter the library, they need to go directly to the circulation desk to check in with a library staff, show them their pass, and then sign in on the clipboard located at the circulation desk. Students will also need to sign out on the clipboard if they leave before that period is over.
If students choose to use the library during advocacy, they must first pre-sign with the library staff and get their agenda stamped. Then the student reports to their Advocacy class, shows their “Pre-signed Stamp” to the Advocacy teacher, before going to the library. Students then get checked-in by library staff and are expected to work quietly and productively. If a student pre-signs with the library and does not show up, their teacher will be notified by email. Students cannot come to the library to hang out with friends or play games. They must come to study.
Keep it Clean
It is the student's responsibility to clean after themselves before they leave.
Student Conduct in the Library
We all know there is the right way and the wrong way to carry ourselves in public, right? Well, our behaviour in the library is no different. The North High Library Media Center is a place where people may come in, independently or with their class, to quietly work or to check out reading materials. We ask that students keep their voice level down so that they do not disturb others. Students who become loud and unruly, or who are not working, will be asked to leave the library. Violations may result in loss of library privileges. Students who need to work in groups should see library staff.
It's important that kids have an understanding of financial literacy early on in order to ensure that they have good (money management) skills as adults. They'll need to be able to create realistic budgets, manage credit and debt, and save for unexpected expenses if they want to be successful in the future. While learning from trial and error can sometimes be a good thing, when it comes to financial literacy, it's far better to learn these skills at an early age.
We would like to give a huge thank you to Ella, a Lyndhurst student who is a member of the Lyndhurst STEM club for girls, and Denise Goodwin, a teacher for the Lyndhurst School System (as well as a part of our schools' STEM club for girls.), for sharing this wonderful learning resource site with our North High students and community.
Thank you Ella!
