Library Media Center Information for Students

The Library Media Center will be open for students to:

  • Read.

  • Study.

  • Complete homework at the tables. 

  • Print out assignments/projects.

  • Troubleshoot a Chromebook or obtain a loaner for the day.

We are open for the students during the following times:

  • Before School - Library Media Center opens up at 8:30 a.m.

  • During Lunch - No food or drink is allowed in the Library Media Center.

  • After School - Library Media Center will close around 4:00 p.m., except on Early Release days, which will be 1:00 p.m.

Library Procedures: Upon entering the library, all students must place their backpack in a shelf at the entrance. Students should remove all necessary materials such as paper, pencil/pen, book(s), etc. Remember: Food, drinks, and loud talking are not permitted.

Checking Out Books: A student may check out two (2) books per loan period. No books may be checked out if the student has an overdue book or an outstanding bill on a lost or damaged book. Books should be returned to the library as soon as the student has finished using the book. A valid Mountain Trail ID must be presented in order to check out a book. 

Loan Period: The loan period for general circulation is two (2) weeks.

Renewals: There is one renewal per book unless the book has been placed on hold by another student. There are no renewals on overdue books.

Reference Books: For library use only, no checkouts permitted.

Overdue Notices: These are emailed to the student and parents and/or guardians every Sunday. Severe overdue notices (more than 60 days overdue) will require the student to serve lunch detention in the Media Center until the book(s) are returned or paid for.

Lost and/or Damaged Books: If the book cannot be found or repaired, the student will be billed for the replacement cost and the student will not be able to check out further books until their account is clear. At the time of check-out, the student must check the book for any previous damage that has not be documented. Do not “dog-ear” pages; use a bookmark!

Behavior: There is no loud talking in the library. Students with inappropriate behavior or computer use will lose the privilege of using the library for a specific length of time depending on the severity of the infraction.

Love to Read?

We're proud to offer a variety of library resources for our students – both in hard copy and as eBooks. We use a system called Follett Destiny for library (media center) resources.

Destiny Discover (sometimes called Follett Destiny) is our web-based library catalog and resource that can be used on any device that is connected to the internet. It allows students, staff, and families to:

  • View book information, including copies available, a description of the book, reading level, and reviews.
  • See suggestions of related subjects.
  • Make a list of book selections.
  • Create a bibliography from a book list with the touch of a button.
  • Write reviews.
  • View your student's Destiny account, which includes materials from both the library and the bookstore allowing families to access check-out history.
