Media Center Policies and ProceduresStack of Books.png

 A variety of activities will be provided for students during scheduled library visits that encourage student engagement, support curriculum standards, and promote technology integration.



Borrowing Books:

  • Students may check out books for one week.
  • A book may be renewed if the book has not been placed on hold for another student or faculty member. Books must be brought to the media center to be renewed.
  • Previously checked out material that is overdue must be returned before checking out additional material.
  • Parents will be notified of overdue materials that exceed 30 days.
  • Students may check out and return books during open library hours before and after school with a pass from their teacher, and during scheduled library classes.           


Book Care:

  • Always keep books in a safe place (in book bag or on shelf at home).
  • Always keep books away from food and drink to avoid wet and sticky mishaps.
  • Always save your place with a bookmark (avoid dog ears or using pens and pencils).
  • Always treat books with care and kindness, so others can enjoy them as well!

 

Fines:

 There are no late fees assessed for material not returned by the due date; however, no further material may be checked out until the overdue items are returned. Lost or Damaged Books: Replacement of damaged/lost material is expected and will be resolved with responsible parties on a case by case basis.


Computer Use:

Computer use in the library media center is limited to: school related activities, research, and AR tests.

 

Volunteers:

Various occasions throughout the school year may require the need for volunteer assistance in the media center. If you are interested in volunteering anytime in the media center, please contact the media center or the school volunteer coordinator.

Possible volunteer opportunities: Book Fair, Bulletin Boards, Book Displays, Book Clubs, Reading the Shelves, and Circulation (checking in and shelving books).
