Library Hours -- March 25, 2016 - end of the year

Dear Evergreen Valley Students,


Mrs. Crichton, your librarian, is having a baby and will be out on maternity leave starting Friday March 25th through the end of the school year.  Ms. Garcia will be opening the library at lunch and by appointment whenever possible.  Please see her in the Book Room or ask in the main office if you have questions about when the library is open.


All books are due Monday, April 18th.  You may return books to and ask questions about fines on your account with Ms. Garcia in the Book Room (across from the student bank).  All Seniors must return any library books checked out to them and clear any library debts on their accounts in order to receive their diplomas.  Thanks Cougars, and see you next school year!


Best wishes,


Mrs. Crichton
