Every media class visit includes a media exchange. Students may borrow varying amounts of materials depending on their grade level and classroom project requirements. All books can be renewed, but they must be present at the time of renewal.
The library media center is the place where students can explore and learn about the things that are interesting to them. We try to guide them to the most appropriate choices for their age, interest and reading levels. Sometimes this can be a challenging task! If you find that your student has selected a book that he or she does not like, or that you feel is inappropriate, please send it back the following day so that another book can be chosen. An occasional "oops" in the selection process is to be expected, and is part of the problem solving and critical thinking process.
Library media center resources are shared by everyone in the school.Students are responsible for returning their library books on time. If they have books that are overdue for more than one week, they will not be permitted to take out a new book until the overdue ones have been returned whether or not they have reached their grade level limit.Overdue books are unfair to other students who are waiting to read them.
Minor damages like small tears or pencil marks often can be repaired in the media center. Books beyond repair, or those damaged by food or liquid cannot be re-shelved with our regular collection and a replacement copy must be purchased. Parents will be notified as to the cost of the replacement book.
To avoid damage to books that are carried in the same backpack or book bag with snack and lunch, we encourage students to enclose their library books in a waterproof/plastic bag for transport between school and home.
Students are responsible for their library books. If lost, their parents will be notified of the cost to replace the book.
