Thanks to a generous grant from the Issaquah Schools Foundation, Maywood Library is pleased to offer the Middle School Homework club on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays! We are open from 2:35 until 4:20 for reading, book checkout, schoolwork and homework help. The last day of the club is Tuesday, June 11.
The Activity Bus is available for students who have been in a supervised after-school activity.
After-school Library Guidelines:
Students need to be in the Library 10 minutes after the final bell at the latest. Anyone arriving later will need a pass from a staff member.
Students need to be engaged in an activity (reading, homework, computer use) while in the Library after-school...students may not simply hang out and visit with friends!
Activity Bus passes will be handed out 5 minutes before busses are scheduled to leave. Students who leave the Library before Activity Bus passes are handed out can not return later to receive a pass!
Use these databases instead of searching the Internet for information. They're reliable, accurate, and are designed for middle school students. They will help you get your work done faster! If you're using a computer at school you will not need a password for most of these databases. To access the databases at home, see Mr. Dahlin for a list of passwords!
In addition to Maywood's online databases, you also have access to an amazing number of databases and other resources provided by the King County Library System. Your Maywood student ID now gives you free access to all of the King County Library System's online information and tools!
