*Individual students are allowed to come to the media center once a day for circulation. 

 

 

 

The goals of the media program are:

 

  • to assist students in developing the attitudes and skills which will enable them in becoming independent, life-long learners;
  • to assist teachers in developing standards-based curriculum that enhances student achievement;
  • to provide access to materials that support a wide range of student needs, abilities, and interests.

 


 Checkout Guidelines:

 

Library books may be checked out by students for a period of two weeks.  They may be renewed during this time, if necessary, but must be brought to the media center for renewal.  There is not a daily fine for overdue books.  However, a student with books that are late will have his or her checkout privileges restricted until either the book is found or a payment for the lost book is made.

 

Overdue notices will be sent out periodically - usually with report cards and prior to holidays.

 

In addition to regularly scheduled activity time, students may come at any time during the day for individual check out with their teacher's permission. 

*Students are allowed to visit the media center ONCE during the school day*

 

**If coming without the class, all students must have a pass and their library card when visiting the media center**

 

 


Lost or Damaged Books:

 

Students are responsible for books checked out in their name.

If you lose a book, tell either "Miss Amanda" or "Mrs. Myers".  The media personnel will give you time to look for it.  If the book is not found, you are expected to pay the replacement cost.

 

If you damage a book, tell us.  If we are not able to repair the book, you are expected to pay the replacement cost.

 

All book prices are included in the media center's cataloging system.

*Any book found during the same school year is eligible for a refund, dependent upon the book's condition*

 

End of Year report cards will not be released until all fines have been paid.
