All students are encouraged to use the library's resources. They may come to the library any time during the day with a pass from their current teacher. Students may check out up to 3 books or 2 books and a magazine. Students may not check out if they have overdue materials or a fine. Students are encouraged to check their Destiny library accounts every time they come to the library. They can also access this from home via the CCBOE website. Students use their student I.D. number and first name to log in.

The Milton Somers library checks out materials for 3 weeks at a time. Students may renew a book one time. The library does not charge any fines for overdue books - we encourage students to return their materials in a timely manner.
