General Library Info: Home

Here you can familiarize yourself with library hours, policies, and more.

Library Hours

All students must sign in and out on the Chromebook when entering and leaving the library.

If you visit during class, bring a teacher-signed pass and sign in at the desk.

Library Pass Policy

1.     All students entering during a scheduled class time must enter with teacher-signed pass.

2.     Students may also visit the library during lunch. No pass is needed. They may go back to lunch IF at least 10 minutes remain in the period. If less than 10 minutes are left they must stay until the end of the period. 

Ask Us!

The Bensalem High School library is a resource center for both students and teachers.  Teachers are encouraged to sign up to bring their classes to library for research. Our staff, technology, and print and digital resources are available to help support your curriculum and the common core standards.  Please remember that we are willing to help you with any project or assignment.  If we don't know the answer, we will find someone who does! 

Borrowing Materials

  • Students must know their student ID number in order to check out a book.
  • Most items can be borrowed for 3 weeks at a time.
  • Materials can be renewed for an additional 6 weeks unless someone else is waiting for that specific item.
  • You are responsible for materials checked out under your name. You will be charged for lost or damaged items.
  • We do not charge fines for overdue items! 

Technology Use

  • All technology must be used for educational purposes only.
  • No games may be played on library computers during the school day.
  • The school district's policy on "Acceptable Use of the Internet" is enforced in the library, and violation of the policy can result in removal of Internet and computer privileges, as well as write-ups.



Bring Your Class to the Library!

Teachers! You may reserve time in the library for your classes to do research or use the library facilities. Sign up for time here (you must be logged into your Bensalem Google account). Advance notice is appreciated when librarian help is needed for the project; we are always willing to brainstorm ideas and identify resources available for your students.
