Library Privileges
  • Out-of-library use: You may check out a maximum of five books at a time. Proper antiseptic procedure will be conducted for protection.
  • You may place a hold on books from the library catalog anywhere and pick them up from the library when you are on campus, within 10 working days.

  • Ask Your Librarian both online or in-person for research, information, Google classroom or google suite application assistance.  
  • Library Club and Student Library Assistant: You are welcome to join the club for your love of reading, or serve the library and school as office aid or for your community service hours.
  • Check out the Student Space for the constant updates of student centered tips and guides to help make your Antonian experience a success.
Check out Policy
  • There will be no fine during the school year to encourage you to read for knowledge and pleasure. You will receive a reminder of all your checked out items monthly. Please renew the items online or in person.
  • “The Rule of Thumb” is to return the library resources as soon as you finish them to avoid losing the items and allow others to check them out.
  • Fines will only incur starting May 1st for the End of the Year Library Account Clearance purpose. 
  • Replacement Fee for Lost or Damaged Items
    • The replacement fee is the cost of the item listed in the library catalog, plus a non-refundable processing fee of $5.00. You must pay the exact amount (with cash, or with a check made payable to Antonian) to the librarian in the library so that your account will be updated properly. 
    • We strongly advise against lending your library books to others so as to avoid a possible replacement fee. The best practice is for you to check in your book first, then let your friend check it out from the library.
    • A refund check will be issued in the event that the lost item is found and returned to the library in good condition, no later than the last day of school.  A refund check only includes the cost of the item.
