Students in grades 1 through 5 may check out up to two books at a time. Books can be renewed as long as there is no one on the waiting list to read the book. Kindergarten students can check out one book at a time, and books are kept in the classroom.
Parents of students in K - 5 are allowed to check out up to five books at a time for a two-week period.
Each class will visit the media center once every other week for 30 minutes. One week is for grades K, 1 and 2, and the other week is for grades 3, 4, and 5. During their visit, they may check out books, participate in digital literacy lessons, listen to read-alouds, conduct research for class projects, or learn how to use new technology and/or apps.
Although there is no fee for an overdue book, books that are lost or damaged must be paid for on or before the last day of school. Any book overdue for more than 30 days will be assumed lost. Checks should be made payable to Morningside. If paying cash, only exact cash payment is accepted as change cannot be given.
Students are encouraged to visit the media center throughout the day. Each classroom has five library passes. If Mr. Rawls is busy with a class, and a volunteer or assistant is not available to check out, third through fifth-grade students are encouraged to use the self-checkout. K-2 students will need to return to their class and check back at another time.
