Mahomet-Seymour High School Library

We are eager to provide the tools and services to our students to help insure they will become effective communicators, productive citizens, and life-long learners. This is a learning center in which information access, critical analysis, creative thinking, and collaborative projects can flourish. This website provides only one small portion of the opportunities we make available - much more is provided onsite with personal attention from our library staff. We encourage our students to seek out assistance to pursue school related projects, research, and personal reading interests.

The library is open to everyone for quiet reading, study, and computer use throughout the school day (7:45 a.m. to 3:40 p.m.). You are welcome to use the library freely before or after school and between periods, but during class time you must have a pass or other written permission.
