Media Center Expectations and Information


    CMHS Media Center Expectations  

    Coming from Class?  You must bring a Library PASS.


    Students must SIGN IN when using the media center without a teacher.

    Recording data of how the media center is being used will provide vital information to assess the needs of our students and the library media center facility. Students may come ANY time before or after school, during lunch, during a flex block or with a pass from a teacher.  


    7:00 am - 2:30 * Monday - Friday

     *I try to open early (between 6:30 - 6:45) 


    Book check out is 4 weeks* *think of it as a 2-week check out and automatic 2-week renewal. Books should be returned when you are finished; others may be on the hold list. Most books should be finished in 4 weeks.

    GENREFICATION: We have Changed…  The fiction section is now organized by GENRE:  This means that books from the same categories are grouped together.  This will help you find quickly books that you like without searching the entire fiction section. Each section is arranged alphabetically by author’s last name.The genre categories in our library are: Graphic Novels, Classics, Horror, Sports, Historical Fiction, Adventure, Romance, Mystery, LGBT, Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Realistic Fiction.



    Students may print at the printing station; there is a ten cent (.$10) PER page charge (black/white only).


    Computers are for use at school to complete homework, class projects and assignments. They are not to be used for gaming, personal email, social websites or downloads. 


    Eat BEFORE you Enter.   No food or drinks are allowed.

    Student ID's

    School IDs are made before school only: 6:45 - 7:15 am.

     * School IDs may be used as a Photo ID for an exam (PSAT, ACT, SAT).  If you have a State ID (driver's license/permit) you do not need a school ID. The first ID we make is free, if you need a replacement, it is $5.00.  Another option is to go to the DMV (Dept. of Motor Vehicles)-they can make a state photo ID

    PLEASE DO NOT WAIT until right before your test - If you wait and the ID system is down, or I am in a meeting, we will not be able to help.
