    New Library Policy

    There is a new library policy here at Malden High. Now, instead of just being able to go to the library, a pass will be needed to come in. This pass can be acquired from the librarian, Mary Liberge, in the morning before or during homeroom. This is going to be enforced by the library now locking its doors ten minutes after a period starts. Also, if students have to go the library for chromebook help during a class they will be expected to bring a pass with them to show Liberge.

    Liberge explains the positives of this new sign in policy by saying that now “both direct study teachers will know where students are going and can now help to limit the amount of people allowed in the library.” Before this policy, there were times when over 60 people were in the library which made it distracting for people who had actually gone to the library to get work done. Now that there’s more control into who can come into the library the limit of people allowed was changed to 35. Now that space is more limited, Liberge states that “more students will come to the library to get work done and have a safe environment to do that”.

    Malden Public Library Book Sale

    On Wednesday December 14th, there is going to be a mini book sale at the Malden Public Library. Books can be purchased for either the regular book sale price or can bought by a bagful for $5. The library has an annual book sale in October with the same deals but with a higher variety of books. However, there are still many books available to purchase and it’s an easy way to find some books to read for the upcoming winter break or even to gift as a Christmas present.
