    Damaged Chromebooks
    If your Chromebook is damaged or not working properly, bring it the the Library Media Center (LMC). If the Chromebook is damaged and you have insurance, you will need to file a claim. You will be given a Chromebook to borrow for the longterm if you need one. The Chromebook will be compatible with the charger you received at the beginning of the school year. If you do not have insurance, you will have to complete a fines report sheet. You will be given a copy of the report to bring home. All "loss" or "theft" issues involving Chromebooks will be referred to the main office where you will be asked to complete the BLUE Theft/Loss sheet. All students who report a damaged Chromebook will receive a Chromebook to borrow while in school for the entire school day. Daily Loaner Chromebooks are to be returned to the LMC before the end of the last period of the day.

    Need to print something?
    Students do not have the ability to print documents from their chromebooks. Stop by the Library/Media Center, sign in, go to a computer in the lab, login with your Windows account and print the documents you need in color or black and white.

    Borrow and read an eBook anytime.
    Click the "Online Catalog" link at the right under CONTENTS. Then, login to Follett Destiny at the top right. Use the same username and password you use to login to your Chromebook. Then choose the "Material Type" dropdown menu and select ELECTRONIC BOOK. Type in a search term and select your eBook. It will be yours for fourteen days.

    Need a textbook while in the Library/Media Center?
    Ask for one at the circulation desk. It will be on loan to you while you are in the Library/Media Center. Some sudents enrolled in LOLA classes will also have textbooks available to them.

    Library Book Policy
    Library books are to be checked out at the Help Desk. Generally a book is due after four weeks. Each day the book is past its due date, a five cent fine will be added to the student's account. Eventually, the student's name will be placed on the school's Fines List if the book is not returned or the fine is not paid. Students can check the status of their borrowed materials by logging in to the online catalog and then choosing the "My Info" tab at the top left.

Indianapolis: The True Story of the Worst Sea Disaster in U.S. Naval History and the Fifty-Year Fight to Exonerate an Innocent ManIndianapolis: The True Story of the Worst Sea Disaster in U.S. Naval History and the Fifty-Year Fight to Exonerate an Innocent Man by Lynn Vincent
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

On July 30, 1945, after delivering portions of the atom bomb to US forces in the Philippine Sea, the USS Indianapolis was sunk by a Japanese submarine. 11oo-plus crew members went into the water, and only 317 survived. Captain Charles McVay, the commanding officer of the Indianapolis, was tried by a court martial and found guilty for losing his ship. For years, surviving crew members fought to exonerate him. This is their story.

The harrowing ordeal endured by the soldiers as they struggled to survive in the middle of the Pacific Ocean for over three days will keep all readers on the edge of their seats.

400+ pages, not terribly difficult to comprehend. Some lulls in the story. The last 100 pages will not disappoint. History, Naval history, World War II history, Survival stories.
