Library Procedures

General Info

Hours

The library is open everyday from 7:10am-2:30pm.

Checkout

We encourage students in middle school to learn themselves and what they can handle. Students are allowed to check out as many books as they can responsibly care for. For some students, that may be one book and for others, it may be ten books. 

We never deny a student a book, regardless of interest, reading ability or maturity level. Parents can enforce checkout limits and requirements with their own student, but the library does not interfere with a student's choices when checking out.

Books and other materials are stamped with a due date, three weeks from the date of check out. Students are welcome to renew items unless another student is on hold for that title.

If a book is already checked out by someone else, students can place a hold. When the book is returned, the library will send an email to the waiting student's fcpsschools.net email address.

Overdues & Lost Books

We do not charge fines for overdue materials. Students are responsible for returning their items on or before the due date. Every Monday, students with overdue materials receive an email on their fcpsschools address reminding them to return the items they have out.

Mistakes happen! Students who lose or damage items checked out to them will be asked to pay for it or provide a new copy of the lost book.

Online Resources

Students are welcome to use databases and ebooks purchased centrally by Fairfax County. To access these resources, log into your grade level Google Classroom and find Library under Classwork.

Students have access to eBooks and audiobooks using our new system, Destiny. These resources can also be found on World Book Online and myon.com. Links for all of these resources are also in the Library Google site.
