Library Policies

  • Checkout Policy

    Students may check out up to three items at a time for a three-week time limit. Items are renewable at the end of this regular check-out period. Additional items may be checked out for an extended period upon request. 

    Items Available for Check-out 

    The library has books, ebooks, DVDs, and digital audiobooks available for checkout.

    Library Assistants

    Library Assistants gain valuable work experience while helping to keep the library running smoothly. They are also the first to check out new books and Makerspace tools. Student Assistants work at the circulation desk and complete odd jobs around the library. If you are interested, please contact your librarian.

    Library Hours

    Our library is open Monday - Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.

    The Heritage Library Makerspace is available for all students to work on independent projects. For more information on our Makerspace, please contact your librarian.

    Please return items by the due date posted in your book or request a renewal. Students are expected to pay for lost or damaged items. Any student who owes an obligation at the end of the year will be placed on a hold list for graduation or schedule pickup the following year.
