McMurray Library Catalog
Welcome to the McMurray Library
The library is open 30 minutes before school (7:30), during break, during lunch, and 30 minutes after school (3:15). The library is closed from 10:08 to 10:38, when students are participating in homeroom activities.
In addition to our excellent fiction and nonfiction collections, the library provides 27 networked computers with Internet access. Along with the books, the computers function as a valuable resource in supporting students with classroom projects. The McMurray Library also holds a unique and extensive collection of graphic novels and comics.
Students may have up to 10 items checked out at any one time; the loan period is three weeks. Students may renew materials they need for longer than three weeks; they just need to bring the book or magazine to the library in order to renew it. This policy helps students keep track of the materials they borrow. A student may check out library materials as long as he or she doesn’t have any overdue (or lost) items. If the student has an overdue item, it’s a simple matter of returning it or bringing it to the library to renew it in order to check out additional items. There are no fines for overdue books; however, students are responsible for lost or damaged materials.
