You must stay in the library for the whole study hall period.During Lunch. No food or drink are allowed in the library, but if you would like to come to the library during your lunch period to work quietly you may. You must come at the beginning of lunch and stay until the end of lunch.
Remember….The library is a place for quiet work, reading and studying.No food or drinks are allowed.Borrow books for two weeks – renew or return before they are overdue.You must always come with a pass unless you are coming during your lunch wave.
What will we do today?Today Ms. McGarry will demonstrate how to search for books in the library’s OPAC – Online Public Access Catalog.
Then, Ms. McGarry will show you how to find books by reviewing how books are arranged in libraries – according to the Dewey Decimal System. Books can be checked out for two weeks – except reference books (REF) – reference books must stay in the library and can only be used here.
Magazines and newspapers can also be foundhere in the library and are available to read for your enjoyment, but must stay in the library; they cannot be checked out.
