The Collection: The Library collection supports the high school curriculum. It includes print and non-print materials: books, magazines and newspapers, videos, DVDs, audio books, online databases and more.
Most library materials circulate for two weeks. Reference materials circulate overnight and are due back the next morning. Back issues of magazines circulate for one week. Most materials signed out for two weeks can be renewed. Fines are 5 cents ($0.05) per day.
The Library Media Center has 23 networked computers with an online catalog system (OPAC), multimedia databases, and access to the Internet. Students must have their own User ID and password to use a library computer which are available to students on a first come first serve basis. Computers and printers are for school related and educational purposes only. According to the Clarkstown Central School District Computer Usage Policy, computer games are not allowed. Printing in excess of five (5) single-sided pages must have approval from the library staff.
The Library Media Center has one copier on the main floor. Copies are free. However, the use of the copier is for school-related educational purposes and not meant for mass copying.
Students may come to the library during study hall periods with a pass from their teacher. The library is open to all students during lunch periods for quiet study, homework and computer use. We reserve the right to limit the number of students in the library due to class use, testing and noise considerations. Seating is limited to 4 students per table and on the gallery benches. Sitting on the floor is not permitted. Students may come to the library after school if they are staying after for sports, extra help, tutoring or a club meeting. Students who only need to do homework after school should go to the homework center in Room 508 -in the Annex.
