The wooden tables are available for                             students to work at...
 

 

 

 ...before school from 6:45-7:55am and briefly after school, from 2:42-3pm.

 
 
 
 

...but occasionally the table area will be closed for testing, meetings, or presentations.  
(See examples in gallery at right ----------->)
We appreciate your flexibility, Argos!

 
 
||| Tools: Choose them wisely; use them well...

Macs here are good for MS Office (Word, PowerPoint) and PDFs, plus they have the Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, etc.)

    

28 Dells (27 desktops, 1 laptop) are good for Google stuff (Docs, Slides, Classroom)

 

You need to print sometimes, so treat the printers well and they will come through for you. That means:

 •

Print your slideshows as handouts, not full-page slides with black backgrounds (OMG, no!). If YDK, ask how to do it.

 •

Print your pictures at reasonable size, not full-page! (Again, OMGN!) If YDK, ask how to do it.

* Lunch time is all about printing--getting that essay or worksheet printed--or another quick use of the computers.  Get on, get your task done quickly, get off and make way for another Argo--that's lunch in the ArgoLib. 
|| Other tools

ID Cards  Copies (1-2 pages max)
 
  • The first one is free.
  • If you lose it, pay $7 at Bookstore then bring receipt to library to get a new one printed.
  • If you upgrade to a lunch card (seniors only; contact Attendance Office) or SuperArgo card, we print those, too.
    
  • As you can see, we don't have a heavy-duty machine here, so... 
  • Typical jobs: copy of ID card or driver's license, copy of a form, acceptance letter(!), etc.
The Conference Room
It might not seem like a "tool," but it can be very handy for small gatherings where
privacy and focus are needed--club meetings & interviews, focused
study sessions, and of course more official business like conferences and counseling sessions.
See Mr Hume to reserve.

Book delivery by drone?
First things first: With modernization, the library building has new A/C, lights, windows, carpet and network hardware.  These may not seem like "tools" but they are.  Comfort, energy efficiency, and a fast network are huge!
 
Later on--if we become a "one-to-one school" ("In the future, we will all have devices"?)--we'd obviously need lots of e-books.
