Activity with students in the library


Three students in front of Stand Here and Think poster in the library

The library is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. weekdays for student use. Students are responsible for materials checked out and are expected to demonstrate appropriate behavior in the library. The library also provides students with computers for research purposes and loans textbooks for students to begin their homework during the school day. Additional library services include:

  • Lost and Found - Bins for found clothing or personal items are located outside the library. Unclaimed items are donated to charities several times each year. Lost textbooks are also placed in the library.
  • Textbooks - Textbooks are very expensive. Students will be held accountable for textbooks issued and library books checked out. All basic texts are loaned to the students for their use during the school year. Textbooks are to be kept clean and handled carefully. Tustin Unified Board Policy #5125.4 authorizes the principal to withhold records, transcripts, grades, and diplomas of any student who willfully or purposely does not return district property loaned to him/her. Parents are responsible for textbooks given to their students and will be required to pay for lost or damaged textbooks. Debts for damaged or lost books must be cleared through the school librarian.
  • Identification Cards - Students will be provided with a Student I.D. card at the beginning of the school year and are expected to carry it to school at all times. Students will need to keep the card for use in the Utt Cafeteria, Library, and to check out blacktop equipment. Replacement I.D. cards are available for purchase at the Library for $5. Don’t lose yours! The replacement I.D. is that of lesser quality than the original free one given to you.
  • IPADS - iPads, protective cases, and charging accessories are issued through the library. We encourage students to pay for iPad insurance as they will be liable for any damage to the iPad. If a student has an issue with an iPad, please bring it immediately to the library to receive tech support. We review with our students the importance of taking care of the iPad. The protective case is not covered by insurance companies, and students will be charged for damage to the case.

ONLINE RESOURCES

  • Britannica: Online resources are great ways to do quick and easy research for every and any project! Britannica offers general overviews of topics and is a better resource than Wikipedia or Google!
  • ABC CLIO: This source requires a username (utt) and password (student) to use. Once you have logged in, this is a great source for in-depth research. Anything you can think of for middle school grades, the information is here!
