The Burley Library is an open library that can also be accessed digitally any time from the Destiny library system to place holds. Additionally, students will typically have the option to come to the library before first block, during their Language Arts class, or after they finish lunch.
 
Checkout Policy
The suggested checkout limit is no more than 5 books per student. Books will check out for 3 weeks at a time. Please contact the librarian if additional books or renewals are needed.
 
Book Selection
The Burley Middle School library is designed to serve a diverse population across a range of ages. Our collection reflects that. What is appropriate for one student may not be appropriate for another. If a student ever feels uncomfortable with a book, they are encouraged to return it to the librarian who is available to help guide them to books they may feel more at ease with. Additionally, the Young Adult section of the library is only available to 7th and 8th grade students. 6th grade students are encouraged to obtain parent permission if they would like to check out books from this section of the library. Please do not hesitate to contact the librarian for assistance selecting books that are both appropriate and high interest.
