SENDING STUDENTS TO THE LIBRARY
1. Students must have a blue library pass, signed by you, to come to the library. Please fill out the pass yourself, including the date, time and your signature.
2. No more then three (3) students at a time can come from any class, unless they are accompanied by a supervising adult. You can write all three names on the same pass if you like.
SCHEDULING YOUR CLASS FOR THE LIBRARY
I am happy to have your class come to the library. If you would like to have me teach them a lesson, please email me at least two weeks ahead of time so I have time to prepare. I can offer classes on topics such as Fake News, Choosing Reliable Resources, MLA/APA style and formatting, Book Tastings, Avoiding Plagiarism, and more.
If you would like to bring your class to the library simply to use the computers, the space, or the resources available, please email me to check availability of the space. I can also pull a selection of books on your topic if you would like.
Any time you bring your class to the library, you are expected to stay with them and supervise them as if they are in your classroom.
CLASSROOM SETS OF BOOKS
There is a wide variety of classroom sets of books housed in one of the storage rooms in the library. The library only provides storage for those books. I do not check those books out to teachers or students, nor do I maintain an inventory on those books. Any time you would like to use the classroom sets, all you need to do is come and get the number of books you need and take them with you to distribute to your students. It is your responsibility to keep up with the books and make sure the students turn them back in to you. I suggest you have them sign for any book that is checked out to them. If they fail to return that book to you, you would be responsible for turning that in as a report card/transcript hold at the end of the semester or year. Library funds are not used to purchase or replace classroom sets. That money comes from departmental funds. I simply house the books because I have the space.
