Hello Vista Heights Wildcats,

When visiting your VHMS library please remember it is a QUIET area for reading and studying.  When you check out library books ALWAYS get your books SCANNED by the librarian before you leave the library!  You are allowed 3 library books under your name at a time.  You get to keep these books for up to 3 weeks.  It is your responsibility to return your library books on or before the due date to avoid being placed on the NO-GO List. If you need the books longer please bring them to the library (close to the date they are due) so we can rescan your books and extend the due date for two additional weeks.  If you finish your books or don’t want them any more you can always return them before the due date.  You can exchange books with the library every weekday. 

If you have any questions, please see Miss. Torie in the library.  

Thank you and remember to READ, READ, READ!
