The students, faculty & staff, and families of faculty & staff at St. George’s School are our first priority. Trustees, Alumni, and parents of St. George’s students are our second priority. Ocean State Libraries (OSL) patrons are our third priority, and other non-affiliated users are our fourth priority.
Access to services:
First and second priority users may access the library collection, spaces, and services during the hours we are open. The Archives has limited hours, and use of those collections is by appointment only, as scheduled with the archivist.
Due to security concerns on our school campus, the library is not open for third and fourth priority clientele to visit in person.
Third priority clientele may borrow circulating materials through Ocean State Libraries and OLIS/LORI interlibrary loan. Circulating materials are defined as Adult Fiction, Adult Non-Fiction, Graphic Novels and Adult DVDs. New Books and New DVDS are for local school-campus use only for 6 months after being added to the collection. Due to our status as a school library in which our primary focus is the support of the school’s academic curriculum and the educational needs of our first priority clientele, Reference Books, juvenile materials, Reserve materials, and Archives & Special Collections materials are not available for interlibrary loan.
Fourth priority clientele may borrow specified materials through the interlibrary loan service provided by their public or institution library. Hill Library is a member of OCLC/FirstSearch and our fiction and non-fiction collections are made available for interlibrary loan to fourth priority users through those services.
Hill Library complies with the LORI Interlibrary Loan Code.
Circulating materials may be loaned to third and fourth priority clientele under the following criteria:
