About the PHS Library

When is the Library open?

Monday to Friday                          7:45 am to 2:45 pm

Please note that occasionally the library will not be open for student use after school due to the use of the facility for meetings and guest speakers.  Please see the monthly calendar posted at the library entrance for details.

Who works in the Library?

Ms. Bauer (am) and Mrs. Blaak (pm)

How many books can I take out at one time and for how long?

You can check out up to 7 books at a time, for 3 weeks.  At the end of 3 weeks, you can renew your books for an additional 3 weeks if needed.  Magazines can be checked out for one week loan periods.

Please note that some resources like encyclopedias and current magazines cannot be checked out.  Use these resources in the library only.

If I return a book late, is there a fine?

There are no fines charged on overdue materials.  However, students will not be able to borrow any additional library materials until overdue items are returned.  Also, please note that there is a fee charged to students for lost or damaged library materials.

Notices of items that are past due or fees that are owing are regularly distributed to students in their homerooms. Students are expected to respond to the first notice and return materials promptly.

How does printing work in the library?

Each student receives 50 print credits at the start of the school year. Additional print credits may be purchased in the school library. The cost for print credits is $1.00 for 20 credits, or any increment of a dollar.  The hours for print credit sales are as follows:  7:45 to 8:20 am, 11:40 to 11:50 am, and 2:30 to 2:45 pm daily.
