Mission Statement

The SHS Library Media Program leads students and staff in the use and production of ideas and information, in the development of lifelong literacy, and in the creation of ethical, contributing citizens.


Monday through Friday, 8:10 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.  Hours are subject to change based on staff availability.

Noon Hour Guidelines

The LMC is open over lunch so students may have a quiet place to study and to access resources.  Students coming into the LMC during their lunch period must sign in for safety reasons. Students are not allowed to eat their lunches in the LMC.


The SHS LMC provides access to technology, research materials, and general reading materials for all high school students, faculty, and staff.  The following guidelines will be used to help staff and students maintain an environment conducive to learning, research, and reading.

  • Students coming from a class during the period will need a pass from the subject area teacher.

  • LMC staff members have the right to send students back to class if there is an overflow of students or if there are behavior issues.

  • The LMC staff reserve the right to seat students.

  • No student may leave the LMC during the class period without permission from a LMC staff member.  

  • Light snacks and beverages are allowed in the LMC.

  • Activities and speech disruptive to other people may result in the suspension of LMC privileges for an appropriate amount of time. 

The LMC staff may adopt other rules and procedures as necessary to provide an environment that is conducive to learning.

Procedures for Overdue, Lost, Damaged and Vandalized Materials

  • All general LMC materials (books & magazines) circulate for 3 weeks with renewals allowed as needed.

  • All reference materials and textbooks are normally given overnight circulation and are due before 1st hour unless a special arrangement has been made with the LMC staff.  

  • Lost materials are assessed a replacement fee based on the purchase price of the material(s).  The fee for damaged and vandalized materials is based on the condition and the cost of the item(s).
