Librarian: Cathy Summers
Checkout Policy: In order to foster a community of shared resources, we typically suggest students check out up to five items. However, students can always access additional checkouts by speaking with the librarian via email or in person.
Checkout Process: Students attending Lakeside may check out books at any point during the school day. Students may place items on hold in the Follett Destiny Library System. Students will receive an email notification when their holds are ready for pickup. Book orders are labeled by student name and are available in the entryway of the school library. Returns may be left in the wood return bin in front of the library doors.
Responsible Reading: In a library that serves students ranging in ages from eleven to fourteen, a wide variety of materials are needed. Obviously, what is interesting and appropriate for eleven-year-olds may not be interesting and/or appropriate for fourteen-year-olds and visa versa. When students select books, Mrs. Summers will issue the standard advice: "If you choose a book that makes you uncomfortable or that would make your parents uncomfortable, return it." The beauty of libraries is that they are all about choice. Find a book you can completely enjoy.
