Ridgeway High School Library Librarian, Susan Harris firstname.lastname@example.org (901) 416-1826 Ridgeway High School
Scheduling • The library maintains an open schedule throughout the day for students to visit. To enter, students must have a signed agenda book. • The library is open Monday-Friday from 7:00 to 2:30. (Mrs. Harris is willing to stay late if she has no previous engagements. Students are expected to come immediately to the library at 2:15 if she is expected to remain after school.)
Procedures • Library books are checked out for two weeks. • Students are allowed to check out two books per check out session. (Do not allow other students to use a book that is checked out in your name.) • There is no fine for late books, but report cards will be held if books are not returned within a reasonable time frame. (Books can be renewed for another two weeks if you drop by the library and tell Mrs. Harris your name; you do not have to have the book with you to renew it.) • Students must pay the replacement price for lost or damaged books. (Return books to the book drop or place them in Mrs. Harris’ hands.)
Library Rules • Speak in a conversational tone. • Eat and drink in the cafeteria, not the library. • Enter and leave the library quietly. • Respect classmates, teachers and library materials. • Use library computers for educational purposes only. (Computer use is monitored.)
