Students may check out up to 3 books for 3 weeks at a time, and must show their ID at time of check out. There is a fine of 10¢ per day for overdue books. Teachers may check out books for a semester, and should clear their records by the end of the semester.

During class time students need a library pass in order to visit the library. There is a limit of 2 students on pass per teacher. Students do not need a pass to visit the library during their free time.
The library is a classroom that can be used by the entire school. We have forty laptop computers which allow students access to online reference materials. We instruct students in the use of LAUSD's Digital Library and its invaluable curriculum-related databases. The teacher librarian is available to collaborate with teachers in implementing lessons using this state-of-the-art technology.
