If you see a book with this yellow YA label, it means that the book may contain mature content. (For example, scenes of violence or battles, a romantic relationship, or a bad word.) 



General Library Policies

Students may use the library to check out textbooks and library books free of charge. A set of textbooks is issued to each student at the beginning of their school year; this set is meant to be kept at home for the student's use. Students will return their set of textbooks at the end of the school year.   

For more information about fines associated with lost, stolen, or damaged textbooks and library books, please see the sections below.  Otherwise, here are the general policies for the RMS library:  


Students must have their current school ID card to check out library books and textbooks


Students may check out up to 3 library books for 3 weeks at a time



Computers (ChromeBoxes) are available for student use while in the library and are issued on a first come/first serve basis.  Computers in the library are for homework only - no games, no chatting, no music! 


AR tests can be taken ONLY at the "AR Station" located behind the librarian's desk. Please ask the librarian for more details on how to take an AR test in the library.  


Students may use their own portable devices to do homework or read a book while in the library. Students must first ask the librarian.
