The LMC offers a wide variety of materials in both print and electronic. Access to the print collection is through a district-wide library system, which allows users to see what district school owns a particular item. The library catalog is available by selecting our Online Library Catalog. If the item is owned by another D20 school, the patron, whether student or staff member may request the materials through our inter-library loan service.
Each student may have five items checked out at any given time during the school year. Each student assumes complete responsibility for any item checked out in his/her name. Students should therefore not check out books in their name for other students.
Students are responsible for returning library materials on the due date in the same condition in which they were borrowed. Overdue/fine notices are sent to students, but students not receiving these notices are not excused from fines incurred. Students are responsible for returning, on time, all materials checked out. Students are not allowed to check out additional books/materials until overdue materials are returned. At the end of the school year, all materials and fines/charges are due by a date determined by the library/media specialist. For damaged library materials, students will be assessed either a repair cost or replacement fee depending on the extent of damage. Lost materials or materials that need replacing will be assessed at the replacement cost to the school. Minimum replacement cost is $2.00.
Students are expected to behave in an appropriate manner for a library, particularly in respecting the rights of others to a quiet learning environment for study, reading and working. Students who are observed not acting in an appropriate manner, including excessive talking, will be asked to leave the LMC. Respect for others using the LMC and for LMC materials must be shown at all times. Snacks (no lunches) and drinks are allowed in the LMC at the center tables only but not by any computers. Students will be asked to remove snacks or drinks if seen by computers or it will be confiscated.
The LMC has many computers that serve a variety of purposes. The Internet is for educational purposes only. The LMC subscribes to several databases that are helpful for research purposes.
If you have any questions or problems, please let an LMC staff member know.
