Library Word(s) of the Week

Network Switch

Network Switch-- Where orange is awful, it is the slide on the front of the laptops that turns the wireless on and off.  If you see orange, the wireless is off.

Non-Fiction Feature

Looking for an interesting non-fiction? Tune in frequently to see what we've discovered!

Did you know that during WW2 African Americans in the Navy were restricted to 2 jobs, serving in mess halls or loading munitions?  And those that loaded munitions received no safety training?  So is is any surprise that when 2 ships and a train blew up they were reluctant to go back to loading bombs?  This is the story of 50 men who were court-martialed for their fear.

AR Bookfinder

With our new version of Accelerated Reader, we now have access to all of the tests available through Renaissance.

WARNING!!  This is a link to a complete listing of available AR tests.  If you are looking up a book that is not one that we have in the SHS Libary, it would be good to check with Miss Huxford or your English Teacher to make sure your book is acceptable for your AR requirement. 

Miss Huxford's Picks

These books really should have made some list, some where, but sadly have been neglected!  Enjoy discovering these hidden treasures with me! You can click on the cover for a book trailer!









Wondering What to Read?

Feeling the loss of seeing Miss Huxford every day to ask what you should be reading?  Then follow the link below where you can catch her as she blogs about the books she's discovering!

Ever thought about donating a book to the library, but you weren't sure what we were looking for?  Then check out our Shenandoah High School Wish List on Amazon.com!  Try the link below!



Happy Reading!

SHS Media Center


1.   Books are checked out using the Follett automation system on the computer.  Students will use the OPAC-- On-line Public Access Catalog-- application.


2.   Each student's number is his/her student ID/lunch #.  Students can use their Student ID card to check out library materials.


3.   Books are checked out for 4 weeks.  They may be renewed or reserved.


4.   Audio Books are checked out for 4 weeks.  Students may only have 1 audio book at a time.


5.   Reference books may be checked out overnight.


6.   Students are responsible for paying the cost of lost or damaged books; audio books are quite costly.



1.   Students are to be reasonably quiet in the library.  It is not merely a gathering place.


2.   Students must have a specific need to visit the library on an individual basis and work accordingly.  Individual students must have a pass.  Passes must be shown to the Library Media Specialist upon entering, and students must sign the clipboard.  Passes must be signed before leaving.  Passes are issued for the following reasons:

a.   To work on a project, paper, or assignment.

b.   To find something to read.

c.   To find a quiet place to study and/or read.

d.   To take an Accelerated Reader Test.


3.   Food, drinks and candy may NOT be brought into nor consumed in the Library Media Center.


Computer Concerns

1.   Each student has his/her own log-in and password.  In order to access your documents from anywhere, save to the H drive, not the C drive.  (For assistance, see Miss Huxford).


2.   Students must talk to the Librarian before using laptops.  Tabletop PCs will be used for Accelerated Reader and the OPAC. 


3.   Email, Chat Rooms, You Tube, Face Book, Twitter, etc. are not allowed at school.


4.   When logging off of computers, you need to go to the Start button to log-off.  Not Ctrl, Alt, Del, Enter, Enter.


5.   Students need to take great care with all laptops: return laptops to correct spots, plugging in power and network cables if needed.
