Maybe you were wondering...
...with all of the construction dust and incredible changes at CIS, when is the new library going to open? Well, in a year from now, we will be celebrating our new space. In the meantime, however, our services and options at the Secondary Library remain as strong as ever.
To kick off the year, we are featuring a theme of "The Crazy Ones." This feature includes books by, about, and for those folks who seek a little craziness and question the status quo. You can read more about it at our blog, or you can stop by the library and check out the books for yourself.
In addition to that feature, we do have, of course, a wide range of options for you. Start out this exciting year with our new tower but be sure to stop by the library. We have something here to entertain and inform everyone!
Pay attention, Nerdfighters! John Green (yes, that amazing author John Green) joined forces with his brother Hank Green (also known as Internet Guy) to bring you an extensive series of short videos on a variety of topics. Take a look, and scan the playlists. Memorable, educational, brief, entertaining, and AWESOME!

It is your responsibility to bring your school ID card each day.
As students, you must use your school ID cards for access to all services provided in the Library. All items to check out include print materials and equipment such as E-readers, calculators and power adapters, and you must have your ID to do so. You can also use your student ID card for photocopying and printing.
Beyond that simple statement, it gets even easier:
|Books (print & digital)||14 days||
|Magazines and Journals||14 days||N/A*||$100|
|Audio-Visual (Audiobooks, DVDs, etc.)||14 days||N/A*||$200|
|Reference materials||1 day||N/A*||$200|
|Calculators and chargers/adapters||1 day||$20 per day||
*Rather than charging fees for most overdue materials, we ask that you return or renew items. You will not be allowed to check out any additional items if you owe a fine or have anything overdue. The rule of thumb: if you expect to check something out, take care of your obligations.
**If a missing or damaged item is part of a set and we are not able to replace the missing portion, then you need to pay for the replacement of the entire set, which means the cost may be significantly higher. This applies to both books and AV materials.
