Media Center Policies and Procedures

Hours of Operation: 
--The library is open during the regular school day from 7:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. You may get a pass from your teacher to come to the Media Center and check out books during this time. If you need to use the Media Center outside of these hours please see Ms. MacDonald to make arrangements.

--Students may check out up to two books for 21 days, and may renew once if there is not a hold on the book.

--Return all items by the due date, 21 days after check out.
--There are no fines for overdue materials, but if a student fails to return an item(s) over a period of time, the student will receive an overdue notice. The notice is also a bill for the item(s) in case the item is actually lost. The student is expected to either return the item or to pay for it if it is lost or damaged.
--Each student is responsible for the library materials he/she borrows. If an item is lost or damaged while it is officially in a student's care, the student is expected to pay the replacement cost of the item. Checking out materials for friends is not allowed.

--No food, candy, drinks or chewing gum. 
--Return all materials to the shelf when finished.
--Show care when using all library resources.

Middle School students may come to the library before school and during breaks. To work on a teacher-assigned project after school, students must have a note from a parent and permission from a teacher.

Our Library/Media Center is an innovative facility that strives to support the curriculum and encourages reading and research. Electronic resources, books, reference materials and periodicals are available to serve the needs of the Crain's Creek Middle School community.
Mission Statement

The mission of the Crain’s Creek Media Center is to encourage students’ excitement for their learning process through literacy and information technology, while also fostering social and emotional growth.
Our goals are to:
Encourage discovery of the resources available in the Media Center and through the Crain's Creek Middle School website.
Foster innovative use of these resources for research and intellectual development.
Provide an environment conducive to collaboration among students and all members of the Crain's Creek community.
Create a collection that supports and strengthens the curriculum. 

Media Center Philosophy 
The Crain's Creek Media Center is dedicated to designing and maintaining a library media program that supports, complements, and expands the instructional program of our middle school. Library media services provide and promote extensive use of multi-media resources that are designed to meet the varying needs of all learners in all aspects of the curriculum. It provides a learning environment which promotes inquiry, stimulates intellectual curiosity, encourages pleasure reading, and develops diverse interests so that students will be lifelong learners.
