Media Center Policies

All classes visit the library for (1) 30 minute period. Fifth grade will have 45 minutes. Students listen to a story, practice library skills, and check out materials. In addition, there will be "Open Library." This is a time when students who have been absent or need to exchange a book before their scheduled class time may use the library.

All books and magazines are checked out for a two week period. Reference materials are a two day loan. Students may renew a book one time for another two week period. While there is no fine for overdue materials, students must return items in order to check out more materials. Overdue notices are sent home periodically, but it is the student's responsibility to know when their books are due.

Lost or Damaged Books It is a good idea to always keep library books in the same place at home such as the student's backpack or on their dresser. If a book is lost or damaged, please contact Mrs Martin. Damaged items should be returned to determine if the book should be replaced. Do not purchase a book from a book store to replace the item. We purchase our books labeled with barcodes designed to work with our software system
