New Printer Station

The library now has a special printer station. All printing must be done from the two computers that are closest to the printer. You may work at any library computer, but then you must:

1) save your file to a USB (thumb) drive or to your Google drive.

2) Go to one of the Printing Station computers, call up your file, and select "Print" from the File menu.

3) From the drop-down Printer menu, select "Brother HL ..." and then hit "Print" again.

Find Your Lost Items!

Have You Lost Something?

Textbooks, jackets, water bottles and other items are frequently left in the library. If you are missing any personal items or textbooks, please check with the librarian. After 1-2 weeks, Lost & Found items are brought to the main office.

Make College Plans Now

It's never too early to start thinking about your next steps in education. We have a wide assortment of books about colleges (shop for your college!) and books about careers.

And don't forget, you can use Ferguson's Career Guidance Center to find information about:
• what preparation you need for different careers
• which colleges can give you that preparation
• all kinds of other information about every college and university in the US.

(You can also access Ferguson's Career Guidance Center from the Link on the library's Destiny Home Page).
