  • Because anyone can come into the library at any time during the lunches, it can get very crowded. If we are at capacity, we will have to turn students away.This restriction does NOT apply to the TLC. You may drop in at the TLC at anytime.
  • Make friends with Mr. Casey! He is very knowledgeable about all things computer related and is very willing to help you with any problems you encounter.
  • Academic work means work for school-related purposes: research for an assignment, working on a power point or paper, or other presentation, researching colleges or careers—anything that isn’t recreational. See our Metallica example—if you’re doing a research project for music or a biography assignment on Lars Ulrich, looking at Metallica websites is fine in any lab. If you’re looking for information on their tour dates, that’s for the drop-in lab.
  • Limited recreational purposes….what does that mean? Fantasy baseball, sports scores, election updates, shopping, that sort of thing.
