Media Center Library Resources
From your first day at St. Joes, your path is focused on college preparatory academics. We hope you'll use some of the resources below as you progress through your years at St Joes.
O'Keefe Media Center
Media Center Hours: 7:30am-5:30pm daily. Please note: the library may close early on early dismissal days or testing days. The O'Keefe Media Center and its dedicated staff provide the resources and skills through class orientations and individual instruction. The ability to find and evaluate information empowers these young men and women to make better, more informed choices.
Checking Out Books
You may borrow and renew as many books or magazines as needed, as long as they are not reserved or on hold for another patron. Materials are lent for three weeks at a time. Bring your selection to the front desk to be stamped and dated.
Overdue and Lost Items
You are expected to be responsible for all borrowed materials as if they were your own. Overdue notices will be sent to you through PlusPortals. There are no overdue fines however, students are responsible for the replacement cost of lost books.
Acceptable Use Policy for Internet and Network Access
All students should read the acceptable use policy for internet and network access located in the student-parent handbook.
