Media Center Procedures and Expectations

Books have a loan period of three weeks, with 1 renewal allowed. Fines are .$25/day but do not begin accruing until a book is 4 weeks overdue (when the fine totals $5.00). Students may have 5 books at any one time but may not check out books if they have still have books outstanding. To avoid replacement fees, please return all materials in the condition in which they are checked out. Overdue notices will be handed out in English classes.

Media Center Hours 
Monday-Thursday: 6:30-3:00 p.m. 
Friday:  6:30-2:30 p.m.

Media Computers 
Media computers house various online databases and our automated card catalog for student and faculty use.  Our webpage can be used as an excellent link to specific web pages and educational sites. The computers may also be used for Internet searching. Students may also print from the library computers.

Study Hall 
Students may use the media center during study hall and lunch periods for quiet study, project collaboration and research. To take advantage of library study hall, simply come to the library at the beginning of your study hall period instead of going to your study hall space. For attendance purposes, you will need to fill out a form when you arrive. For contact tracing purposes, you will fill out another form at your seating area. You should be in the library before the tardy bell rings.

You may also get a pass to the library from your study hall teacher or during other class time if your teacher allows it.

Masks are required in the library; food is not allowed at this time.

By coming to library study hall, you agree to follow the rules of the Media Center. Failure to follow sign-in and library rules may result in loss of privileges.
