MATERIALS CHECK OUT
Students may check out books for a two week period, with no limit on the number of books that can be checked out. Exceptions to the two week period are magazines (2 days) and reference books (1 day). Students may renew materials by bringing the item to the Media Center or by logging in to Web Safari and renewing it themselves (Use the Online Catalog link). The Media Center staff reserves the right to change this at any time. The Media Center does charge fine of $.10 per day per item for overdue materials. Students may pay off their fines in the Media Center or volunteer to cover the amount owed.
If a Media Center resource is lost, the patron is responsible either for the cost of the material or replacing it with an identical item.
Faculty and Staff members are not limited in number of check-outs nor are they subject to a time limit. Materials must be renewed every year during inventory.
The Media Center is open from 7:00 to 3:00 daily, unless otherwise arranged with the Media Center staff. Students are encouraged to visit before, during lunch, and after school. During class time students must have a pass. Students can use the Media Center for class work, group assignments, individual study or personal reading.
We request that you do not eat or drink in the Media Center.
