  • The Herff Library is a center of learning for students to explore their interests and discover new and interesting things.  Students have access to a variety of materials including books, e-books, and digital resources.  The library is also a great place to curl up and read a great book!  There are MANY amazing ones to choose from!!

    The library is open each day from 7:35 am - 3:00 pm.  Students will visit the library each week with their classes, and may also come to the library between class visits to work independently or exchange their book(s). 


    Digital @Home Learners: Curbside pick-up is available!  Search Destiny to find the two books you would like to check out and place them on Hold.  You may access Destiny through the Student Portal or from the link on the library resources page.  If you need help on placing a hold, please see the 'how to' video on the library resources page. The day/time/location of curbside pick-up will be posted soon. 


    Library Procedures

    All students come to the library each week for a lesson and to check out books.  

    Students in Kindergarten and 1st grades may check out one book at a time.  Students in 2nd through 5th grades may check out two books at a time.  Although students visit the library each week, students may keep their books for up to two weeks.  After two weeks, students must either return their book(s) or renew them for an additional two weeks.  We do not charge overdue fines, however, we do charge for lost and damaged books.

    Our books are all brand new!  We need your help so they remain in excellent condition.  Please encourage your child take care of their library materials by reading them with clean hands, keeping them away from food and drinks, keeping them away from pets and very small children, and by using a bookmark to mark their place.  Water bottles often leak and should not be placed inside of the backpack next to a library book.
