WELCOME TO YOUR CHINO HIGH SCHOOL LIBRARY!
The mission of the Chino High School Library is to provide a unique environment where students can effectively apply their acquired skills with integrity and respect for others. The library strives to support students to think critically and creatively while gaining an enthusiasm for learning. Our mission is to help students achieve their personal and academic goals and become lifelong learners through engagement, technology, teacher collaboration, and a well maintained and current library collection that empowers students to be effective citizens on campus and in their community.
Chino High School will be the premier library model by building a knowledge infrastructure that branches into all aspects of the campus culture and by becoming the center for powerful teaching and learning through rigorous and diverse activities in a community of integrity and respect.

Computers: Access to the school’s network is a privilege and is for school work only. Inappropriate use will result in the loss of privileges, and possible disciplinary action. If students lose their privileges, students and their parents must apply in writing to Administration, who will decide when and if privileges will be reinstated.
A few things to remember:
- A valid ID card is always required to check out text and library books.
- All library books are checked-out for 2 weeks at a time and can be renewed 2 more times.
- Printing is available (black ink only).
- Students MUST have a pass to be in the library during class time.
- Eating or drinking is not allowed.
- Library book late fees are .20c per day, maximum of $5.00.

Textbook services are available with your teacher during class time or on your own before school, lunch, and after school. New students may come anytime and on the same day as registered.
When you receive your textbooks, look the book over carefully that day. If you see any damage that is not noted inside the cover, report it within 3 days. A replacement or repairs will be done if necessary. Student will be responsible for damage fees if not reported right away. Write your name on the inside front cover of the book and protect your books from the rain or other damage by covering them. Replacing a textbook will cost A LOT, so handle them with care!
If you leave your textbook in a classroom, or anywhere else, YOU are still responsible for it! You are also responsible for returning it directly and in person to the library staff. Always wait to make sure the book turned in is yours and that there are no fines on your account.
- All textbooks must be covered if carried to school.
- Free book covers are available in the library while supplies last. If you need help learning to cover a book, a library staff member will be happy to assist you!
- If you drop a class, return the textbook immediately. If not, a fine will be added to your record and will prevent your participation in many extra-curricular activities.
