Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do I need my ID to come into the library?
A: If you are visiting the library before/after school, or during the school day, you must scan your ID upon entering. You get one chance a semester to go into the libray without your ID.
Q: Can I listen to music in the library?
A: Yes. As long as you use headphones and the music cannot be heard by anybody else.
Q: How do I become a student worker?
A: Student workers apply at the beginning of each semester. You can volunteer to work with us during your lunch or studyhall. Applications can be found at the check-in counter the first week of each semester. Just fill one out and turn it in to Ms. McGee.
Q: Do student workers get paid?
A: I'm afraid not. But the time you spend working in the library counts as community service. You can log the hours you work for National Honor Society, list your work experience on your resume, and even use Ms. McGee and Mrs. Naes as references for job applications.
Q: How do I join Book Club?
A: Book Club meets about every 6 weeks and you must sign-up for every meeting. Just visit the library and tell us that you would like to be a part of the next Book Club meeting! If you sign-up in a timely manner you should receive a free copy of the book.

A: Book Club meets about every six weeks during lunch in the library conference room - that's the big room with windows behind the front desk.
