About the Library
The Claremont High School Library contains over 20,000 fiction, non-fiction, biographies, reference and resource titles. These titles can be checked out to students for periods of two weeks at a time. Books can be renewed indefinitely. A fine of $ .25 per day is charged for all items returned after the two week loan period. Unlike resource books there are no grace period days for library books. Library books must be renewed before the due date passes, in order to avoid a fine.
Students are responsible for all library materials checked out to them. This includes textbooks, resource books and library books, if the student loses a library book, the library will follow the lost textbook policy found in the Parent-Student Handbook on page 25. The student will pay the cost of the fine plus the cost of the book. The cost of the fine shall not exceed the cost of the book.
For example if a student loses a $20 library book and does not notify us that they lost it, the most a student would pay would be $40. The cost of the book and the fine as listed above.
The teacher-librarian welcomes teachers to bring their classes to the library to work together on meaningful, units of instruction. Library materials may also be checked out to teachers to use in classrooms for a limited period of time. There is a sign-up sheet for both the computer lab and library classroom. It is on a first come, first serve basis. However, we feel that classes should not be signed up for more than 2 days in a row. This will allow all teachers the same opportunity afforded to your students.
The library is unable to monitor exams. Teachers, please make arrangements with a neighboring teacher for make up exams.
The Claremont High School Library strongly encourages teachers to display their student's projects. We will make the room if it becomes impacted.
We have cable access for taping off the air for educational purposes. Copyright Law will be respected.
All students are able to access computers in the library using their Moodle accounts. Each student has been given this information with their registration information. Students should be aware to log "off" when they are finished. Students are able to use the computers, as individuals, before school, at lunch and after school or at passing periods. Passing periods will be on their own time, no passes will be written.
