Welcome to Half Moon Bay High School's Virtual Library

You will find all the resources, tools, and information you need to search our library catalog, access electronic research databases, and write your research papers.      

Web-based library catalog - Destiny



The library is open from 7:15am to 3:45pm on Monday - Friday.  On Early Release Tuesdays the library closes at 12:05pm. Due to Homework Club from Monday - Thursday, the library will usually close around 4:15pm.


Keep in mind the library may also open a bit later than 7:15am due to cleaning, staff meetings or other reasons. 


Further Note: The library is normally closed 30 minutes during 5th period for librarian's lunch Monday through Friday and 15 minutes during 6th period for librarian's final break. Keep in mind these breaks may be taken later in the respective periods if other matters are being handled beforehand. 




While the library continues to be a main social hub on campus, it is imperative that students remember that the main function of the library and computer labs is to support students in their academic endeavors. Hence, some ground rules:

  1. No eating or drinking in the library. Sports water jugs (not water bottles) are allowed, however. 
  2. Please keep volume at a reasonable level.
  3. If you move chairs, tables, or books, be sure to put them back in the place you found them.




Book Donations:  We are happy to accept lightly used books of all types from children’s books to adult books and reference materials, if they are a fit for our library needs.
