The mission of the NBHS Library Learning Commons is to create an environment that encourages students to become effective users of ideas and information. To accomplish this mission the program provides intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats, as well as instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing and using information, and to encourage students to work together to solve problems. In familiarizing students with all aspects of the Library Learning Commons, the students’ comfort level in a library is amplified. Through this increased familiarity students are able to develop a sense of empowerment in the knowledge that they may utilize all aspects of a library to obtain information. Thus, the high school library media program creates the foundation for lifelong learning.


 Library Learning Commons users are expected to:
  • have a respectful attitude toward staff and all other users
  • display a responsible and mature attitude when using the furniture, equipment, and resources
  • mindfully adhere to the school and Library Learning Commons procedures and policies, copyright regulations, and the district's Acceptable Use Policy (as found in the student handbook), and
  • refrain from bringing food and open drink containers into the space


All materials borrowed for individual use must be signed out at the circulation desk. Materials circulate as follows:
