Library Use Policy
The Isabel Cameron Library contains a wide variety of print and non-print resources to support the library's mission: to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. In order to maintain a library atmosphere conducive to research, quiet study, browsing and pleasure reading, the librarians reserve the right to ask students not involved in quiet and productive activities to leave the library.
To ensure that everyone using the St. Agnes Library has a positive experience, students are asked to follow these procedures:
Circulation Policies (all items must be checked out at the circulation desk)
- Enter and exit the library quietly and respectfully.
- Students have the priviledge of eating and drinking while studying in the library. Please be respectful of your surroundings,
clean up any mess you make and recycle or throw away all trash. For caution's sake, all drink cups must have a lid.
- Keep book bags and other unnecessary items under the tables.
- Request a pass from the library staff before leaving the library.
- To help conserve paper, please use library printers for school related materials only.
- Respect the RIGHT of everyone using the Library to study, read, or research in peace and quiet.
- Books may be checked out for 14 days (fine is $.10 per day).
- Video tapes and audio resources may be checked out overnight (fine is $1.00 per day).
- Reference books may be checked out overnight (fine is $1.00 per day).
- Reserve materials are ordinarily for library use only and are located behind the circulation desk.
- Periodicals: current issues may be checked out overnight, and back issues for 14 days (fine is $.10 per day).
- Lost materials must be paid for at the replacement cost plus $5.00 per item to cover the cost of processing.
Students must abide by the guidelines outlined in the St. Agnes Academy Acceptable Use Policy found in the Student Handbook.
Note for library computer users: Research and school related work ALWAYS have first priority on the library computers. All use of these computers falls under the Acceptable Use Policy.
