Frequently Asked Questions

How do I check out items from the Media Center?

Bring your items and either your SMMHS student ID or your agenda with a barcode to the circulation desk in the Media Center.


When is the Media Center open?

Monday-Friday 7:15am-2:30pm. On early dismissal days or days when school opens late,

the Media Center will only be open during school hours.  




How many items can I check out at a time?


7th - 12th graders may check out up to three items at a time; 6th graders are limited to 2 at a time. However, during certain class projects, fewer items may be permitted so that more students can use materials for assigned topics. A member of the Media Center staff or a faculty member will alert you to those times.


How long can I keep the books I check out?

Most books can be checked out for three weeks, and renewed once for only one additional week. If there is a different loan period, a Media Center staff member will let you know.


How do I renew a book?

Go to the circulation desk in the Media Center, and tell the librarian or volunteer that you would like to renew an item. They will look you up in the system, verify the item, and renew if for you right there! You don't even need to have your book with you!


Where do I return items?

Place books in the book-return slot on the front of the circulation desk just below the Media Center Sign-In Computer.  


How do I reserve a book?

Information on exactly how to do this is coming. Details and tutorials will be created soon to let you know exactly how to do this!
