Mission Statement and

Expectations for Library Use

The purpose of the Shikellamy High School Library is to provide a quiet learning environment within the school community.  

Resources in the library will support the curriculum and provide learning opportunities for all students. Books and materials are provided for recreational reading as well; these materials are chosen through recommendations by staff and students, American Library Association award winning books and lists, and book reviews from School Library Journal other professional publications.

The responsibilities of the librarian include providing equal access to all students & staff members who wish to use the library as a quiet place to study, read and conduct research.

Due to scheduling, teachers and students alike will be using the library throughout the day.

It is the responsibility of each student to respect the rights of students, teachers, administrators, and all other persons who are involved in the education process.

With this in mind the following rules will be in effect:    

  • Books and other library materials and equipment must be treated with care.

  • A quiet atmosphere will be maintained at all times

  • When classes are in the library, access to the library will be restricted

  • Use of technology in school is outlined in the student handbook. Any violations will result in a loss of privileges.
