Please remember to turn in library books weekly.
Students that have books out from last year, must return books before
they can check out new books. Students who have come from other
schools have informed us of overdue books at their school. Those
students will not be able to check out new books until their overdue
books are also turned in. Thank you for your help.
library could use someone to help take care of it. If you would like
to volunteer please call 584-7200. We need people to help shelve
books, straighten up shelves, and do general library housekeeping.
Any help would greatly be appreciated by students and teachers. _________________________________________________________

Remember that when you look
for information on the Internet, the information might not be totally
up-to-date. It might not be
as accurate as the information you get from encyclopedias and books from
good publishers (where lots of people check the information before the
book goes into print). Remember
also that free information is often paid for with advertisements – but
that doesn’t mean you have to buy the stuff!
