Policies and Procedures

Students visit the media center every week with their homeroom class and may also bring a library pass to visit the media center whenever it is open. Students may check out a maximum of 3 books at a time. Books are due 2 weeks after they are checked out.

Students may not check out if they have an overdue or lost book. Payment for lost books should be taken care of as quickly as possible so that students' checkout privileges may be reinstated.
