Hours:

The SBMS Library is currently closed for browsing, but students still have access to our physical collection. You can place holds by visiting the online catalog, Destiny (see the blue button to the left).  You can also request a book bundle using this form.   

Book requests will be delivered to students’ BPT or LA classes, for our in-person learners.  Virtual learners may pick up holds on Tuesdays or Thursdays at the front office.  Students will be notified via email when their holds are available for pickup.

Check Out Policy: 
Books can be checked out for up to two weeks and may be renewed once if there is not a hold.  Books can be returned to the library cart located outside the library door; virtual learners may return books to the front office any day during school hours.
