The mission of the Dr. N. H. Jones Media program is to ensure that the students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. This is accomplished by providing intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats; by providing instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas; and by working with other educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students.
Each student in Kindergarten may check out one book at a time. Each student in 1st through 5th grade may check out up to two books at a time. Parents may sign up for their own library account and check out up to three books at a time. All books may be kept for two weeks.
Overdue Items and Renewals
There are no fines for overdue materials, however, in the case of extremely late materials, students may have their library privileges restricted. Books may be renewed for an additional two weeks, for no more than two renewals.
Gifts of gently-loved books are always appreciated. They may be added to the media center collection, given directly to students and teachers, or donated to school media centers in the area or the public library.
