The library is open!
We are open each day from 7:55- 3:10 for checkout. We are in the process of a remodel so things are always changing! This year we have arranged our books by categories, sort of like a bookstore. We have Anime'/Manga, Funny books, Mystery/Horror, Science Fiction/Fantasy, Relationships and Sports. We have a new circulation system that will soon offer ebooks on an app. Watch for updates!
Here are some guidelines we go by in the Media Center.
*Students may check out up to 2 books per visit.
*The due date card given at check out tells the latest date the book should be returned to the Media Center. Each day past the due date will incur a fine of twenty-five cents per book, per day. Students pass the library en route to all classes and can drop books that are due off anytime during the day.
*We check the condition of each book upon check-out and check-in. If a book is damaged (torn, wet, written in, etc.) or lost while it is checked out to your student, a fine of $20 will be charged for replacement of the library binding version of the book.
There is no AR program this year. The ELA teachers are working on project based learning units surrounding books that students will check out. We are going to be helping students locate books based on interests and Lexile levels.
Your student's Lexile score will be included as part of their Georgia Milestone Assessment English Language Arts information. To learning more about Lexile scores and what they mean, click here. If you are interested in finding books that are in your student's Lexile range click here.
