Library Policies


Hopkins Library is a Quiet zone where Hawks can enjoy reading a book in a quiet space away from the noises of the playground, work on their assignments or just have some quiet time to themselves.

Students needs to present their Student ID card  for all types of check outs in the Library.

You can checkout 4 books at a time and keep it for 3 weeks. For renewals, please bring the books to the library.

The Ebooks and the electronic resources are available for students 24/7. Students can enjoy them using their Library credentials. If you dont know your Library username or password, refer to Destiny Discover or contact the Librarian.

Students are expected to place no more than 2 Holds at a time.

The Library Computers and Chrome Books are ONLY for School related activities. 

Hopkins Library is a NO CELL PHONE, NO FOOD OR DRINK zone.

The timely return of the books in the Library or Book drop is an act of kindness for your neighbor.

Hawks are expected to check their school email regularly so that they dont miss any overdue notices from the Library.
