The HERI library has a microscope which is available for use in the library.
The curriculum may be checked out from AUGUST to MAY for the entire period without renewal. Other materials have a 3 month check-out time during the August to May time period and must be renewed if needed longer. Extensions for the summer may be granted with approval from the head librarian.
All library material has been donated (including the wood for our bookcases). If you would like to donate material to our library, please stop by during library hours or email: firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a drop off time. You can also contact us HERE.
We can always use librarian volunteers to help inventory our material. Students in 9th through 12th grade will receive community service hours. If you are interested in volunteering in our library, please email: email@example.com or you can contact us HERE.
Upon checking out resources you agree to:
- Take care of the borrowed resources: no writing, highlighting or marking in them.
- Return or renew them by the scheduled due date. Items may be renewed two times and may be done so via email. Over the summer renewals are allowed with permission from the librarian and must be communicated prior to the end of the school year date in May.
- Pay any late fees or lost book fees as assessed due to neglect.
Fees will be assessed as follows:
- $.50 per resource, per day late fee (Monday and Thursday)
- Cost to replace lost or damaged book
You have the option to replace a lost book with the same book or a more current version of the lost book
