During our COVID-19 online learning time, please check out all the great online resources that have been updated under RESEARCH TOOLS. 
At this time, you will not have to return books until we return to school in August.  I will continue to weed books and when I have several available, I will set books outside of the high school and advertise them for you to have FREE, throughout the spring and summer.
 
If you would like access to online books, please check out Junior Library Guild, Overdrive, Audible.com or e-mail me at spiedmont@bvps.org to receive your passcode/pin and download instructions by clicking on this...  Open eBooks

Books may be checked out from the Library for a period of three weeks and renewed for additional time.  It is suggested that only two books be checked out at a time.  Periodicals, reference books and audiovisual materials do not circulate.  Access to the book collection is provided by using the computerized card catalog, Destiny, located on the school website.  Laptops are provided to the students for the purpose of enriching their educational experience.  The laptops are property of the school system and should be treated appropriately.  If repair work is needed, please bring the laptop to the library.
