Media Center Behavior Expectations
Hours of Operation:
Monday – Friday 8:30 a.m. 4:30 p.m.
Students may visit the media center at any time during these hours with a signed agenda or pass from their teacher.
The Durham Media Center is a flexible, inviting space offering a collection of over 18,000 books (including digital audio and ebooks), more than 50 subscription-based online databases through Cobb Digital Library, 46 networked computers, print magazines and newspapers, and a production lab of project resources and supplies. The media center staff consists of a media specialist, Mrs. Erin Baker, and a media paraprofessional, Ms. Tracey Webb.
Students may check out up to two print books and two ebooks for a period of three weeks in addition to one magazine for as many as three days. Books may be renewed for an additional circulation cycle as long as the item is not on hold for another patron. Reference books, including the extremely popular Guinness Book of World Records, may be checked out for overnight use and should be returned at anytime during the following school day.
Due dates are stamped on the inside cover of books, and students are encouraged to return their items on time. Late notices are periodically distributed via homeroom for excessively late books. Any student with an overdue book should return the item to the media center or pay for the item if he/she has lost it. Refunds for “lost” books that are located within 30 calendar days, and returned to the media center, will be issued via check and mailed to the student’s on-file address.
