ABOUT THE MEDIA CENTER

Hours:  Monday – Friday, 7:15 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Students can visit the Media Center with a pass from a teacher at any time during the school day.

The media center is usually open before and after school, also. Please plan in advance with Ms. Gillis if you would like to use the Media Center after school. Students who use the library after school must arrange for transportation home.

Students may check out three books for two weeks. Patrons must return any overdue books before checking out a new book. Fines will be charged for lost or damaged books. Students who have fines from any DPS schools will have limited access to our library’s collection. Please see Ms. Will for questions regarding your DPS library account.

For more information about the Media Center, please read the Policies and Procedures document for students and teachers or view the orientation slide show.
