Hours of Operation
The library is open Monday-Friday during school hours. Students may check out books, place books on hold, take AR tests, and read quietly before school, during recess (if we do not have a class), and with their regularly scheduled class. Students must have a pass from a staff member to visit the library once school has begun. Students may return books at any time by placing them in the book return slot at the circulation desk.
We do not charge overdue library fines at MES; however, we ask students who are finished reading their books to return them to the return slot so the book will be available to other students.
Lost and Damaged Books
If a book is lost or damaged, the book must be paid for before the end of the school year. Payment for a lost or damaged book is reimbursed should the book be found and returned in good condition. Debts remaining at the end of the school year may be turned in to the office and become a part of the student’s permanent file. Any items checked out at the time a student withdraws from school must be returned and paid for upon withdrawal. If a student is facing hardship and cannot pay for the damaged/lost book, please send me an email.
