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

Library Hours

Monday - Thursday

7:00 AM - 2:45 PM

If you visit during lunch, come straight to the library. Sign in at the desk.

We will give you a pass to enter lunch when your work or book checkout is done. 

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 visiting during lunch periods must come straight to the library at the start of the lunch period. After work is complete, we can write a pass to enter the cafeteria if 10 minutes or more remain in 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.
