The Tecler Media Center houses more than 10,000 books. Students are typically scheduled to visit the library every other week for class and book exchange.  

Library Policies

Circulation Policy

Students may exchange their books daily. They may keep their books for up to two weeks before they must renew them by bringing them back into the library for scanning. Books may be renewed up to two times before they must be returned to the library.

Overdue/Lost Book Policy

If a student has one overdue book, he/she may not take out another book until the overdue one is returned. 

Library Rules

  • Students are expected to treat each other and the contents of the library as they would like to be treated themselves.
  • No gum, food or drink is allowed.
  • Internet research computers and Chromebooks must be used for educational purposes only.

Parent Information

Parents, please read and discuss these rules with your children. Together, find an appropriate and safe place for each child to keep library books. Help your child to develop good library habits and a love for reading that will develop into a lifetime appreciation of books. Family use and respect for reading materials will help a child be successful in and out of the classroom.
