Policies & Procedures

Visiting the Library

HOURS: M-FRI 7am-5:30pm
FOOD & DRINK are NOT permitted in the library.

When visiting library during class time, students must have a GREEN PASS. Students are not allowed to leave and return while on a pass.

Teachers may send up to five students with a specific assignment on a green pass each period.

Checking Out Library Resources

Students may CHECK OUT up to five books at a time (two books on the same topic at a time).

In order to put a book on hold, please fill out a blue hold sheet. Student will be notified by email or a note to the classroom when the book is available.

Books check out for one month; RENEW books for two more weeks.

LATE FEES accrue at 5 cents a day per book; a maximum overdue fine of $5.00 per book applies.

Fines are assessed for DAMAGED BOOKS. Please notify library staff of damage found immediately.

OVERDUE NOTICES are sent out periodically by email, but students are responsible to ensure that books are returned on time.


Fourteen student use computers are available in the library for SCHOOL USE ONLY (this includes e-mail).

PRINTING - First 5 black & white copies are free. Overage fines will be assessed if students exceed the five page daily limit.


The textbook office is open from 8:15 am - 1:00 pm. If it is closed, please come into the Library for help.

Please open phone to Student Vue and have barcode ready to scan when checking out textbooks or novels for classes.
To avoid textbook fines, treat your books with care. Bring them back to the textbook office within 30 days of issuance if you find any type of damage. All textbooks must be returned in the same condition that they were issued. Any preexisting damages are noted in the back cover of the textbook. Textbook staff will assess fines based upon altered condition of textbooks (fines range from $3.00 for minor repairable damages to the full replacement cost of the textbook).

Students may also log in to their Destiny account to check barcode numbers or due dates. In order to log in, use Student ID # for the log in name, and Student's YYYY/MM/DD for the password.

You are responsible to pay for lost, stolen, or damaged books, but if you cannot pay the full amount you may fill out a payment plan and make regular payments throughout the year in order to satisfy your debt.

LOST TEXTBOOKS USUALLY TURN UP. People regularly turn in lost textbooks, so if you lose one, stop by the textbook office, and we can let you know if it has been turned in. If you pay for a lost book and it is found and turned in within one year, we will process a refund and a check will be sent to the home address on file.

ID Cards

All students are REQUIRED to carry a current SMHS ID card for identification while on campus. This ID card is required at all dances, to check out library books, textbooks, Chromebooks, and calculators.

Students are issued ID cards digitally annually which can be accessed through the StudentVue app. Should a student not have a phone or app access, they may get a hard copy ID in the Future Center.  Lost IDs will result in a $10 replacement fee.
