 Library Policies

The library media center is open to all students throughout the school day with teacher permission. Each student may have as many as 2 items checked out at one time.  The loan period is 2 weeks.  Students may renew their books as needed during that time.  Please be advised that a fine of $0.05 per day will be charged for each overdue item.  Students need to clear fines in order to take out new material.

The library computers may be used to search the Destiny catalog.  Students may use the computers to complete classwork and projects, if they are given a computer usage pass from the teacher who assigned the work.   

 The Swift Library has a wide range of fiction and nonfiction material for independent reading, research, and SSR.  We encourage all students to visit the media center and utilize these resources.  As always, students will be expected to follow the Code of Conduct while using the facility.
