EGHS Usage Policies
Welcome to the Library! 

  1. Checking out books—When you are ready for checkout, a library worker will enter your name in the computer, scan your book, and stamp a due date reminder in your book.  The checkout period is two weeks.
  1. Please have your book back to the library on or before your due date.  You can renew by stopping in the library or sending an email request to Mrs. Vandeventer. If you have an overdue book, you cannot check out any more materials.
  1. Fines are not assessed on materials.
  1. Lost materials will be dealt with as a lost textbook. Basically, you must bring in the book or pay for it.  If this does not happen, you will not be allowed to check out more materials.
  1. The computers by the windows are for student use.  Teachers also check out this lab for classroom use, and they will get priority.  Remaining machines will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
  1. Reference materials are available.  Ask for any help that you need in completing an assignment.  If you come to the library for help with a research project, please bring your assignment sheet from your teacher.
  1. The newest magazines are in the magazine rack, and the archived magazines are given to students and teachers for their use.  If you see a magazine you want, let Mrs. Vandeventer know.  She will let you have it as soon as the new issues arrive.
