To check out materials, you will need YOUR student ID.   To check out, go to the computer at the check out desk.  Hand your ID and the material you wish to borrow to the person at the desk.  Your ID will be checked and scanned and returned to you.  The material will be scanned, date-due stamped, and desensitized.   Materials will NOT be checked out to you unless you have your own bar coded student ID.    YOU are responsible for ALL materials check out with your student ID.

LOAN PERIODS

Books and magazines in the general collection may be checked out for 3 weeks.   There is NO limit to the number of materials you may check out.  Reference books, reserve books, and encyclopedia may be checked out after school for overnight use. All materials should be returned before school the day they are due.

OVERDUE NOTICES

Overdue Notices are generated by the computer each Monday morning. The 1st and 2nd reminders
are delivered to your 1st period teacher for a Tuesday delivery.   The 3rd notice is mailed to your parents.  The 4th notice results in detention until the item is paid for or returned.  Please contact the media specialist if there are problems or extenuating circumstances (ex: you left a book at Grandma’s and she lives in Iceland [slow mail – dog sled], you returned it to the wrong library), etc.
