The NGHS Library's most important function is to support the school's curriculum and to provide interesting and entertaining books for both students and faculty. To achieve these services, the library maintains a basic reference section, biography collection as well as nonfiction and a large fiction collection.
The NGHS Library's main goal is to help students develop a love of reading to carry them through life for not only educational needs but for enjoyment.
Checking out a book
Students are allowed to check out three books at a time. If the student has an overdue book or a fine, the student will not be allowed to check out additional materials until their status is clear. Books may be checked out for a period of ten days (excluding weekends and holidays).
Students are allowed to visit the library before school each morning without a pass. During the school day, students must have a library pass from their teacher, and the student is responsible for stamping in and out of the library.
After two week grace period, a one dollar fine is charged on overdue books and magazines. The maximum charge is $1.00.
Black and white copies from the copier or the printer are 10 cents for each page. Color copies are 25 cents per page.
Find books, ebooks, and other resources by visiting your school's library catalog. If you need help with any of these resources, please contact your school librarian.
Online instructional resources
Online Instructional Resources are available to all students, teachers, parents, and administrators from any district or non-district computer.
