SAHS Media Center Policies

Book checkout:

  • Books are checked out on a 2 week basis and can be renewed as needed.
  • All students are allowed to check out 5 books at a time.
  • Books can be returned in the book drop slot in front of the media center entrance, or the book return carts in the media center by our Maker Space.  Please make sure you are placing books on the correct book return cart.
Fees & Fines:
  • There are NO late fees on books; however, if a student has requested the book you have overdue, we require that you return it ASAP.
  • If a library material is not returned by the end of the school year, a replacement fine will be placed on the student’s account.  This can prevent the student from participating in special school events such as homecoming, prom, or grad bash and other senior events.
  • Please speak with media staff if you have questions or concerns about a library fine.
Passes and Usage Rules:
  • Students have access to the media center before school starting at 8:45 a.m.  They are also welcome to visit during their lunch time by obtaining a Media Center Lunch pass. These passes are limited, and students must pick one up in the media center before school starts.

  • Lunch in the media center is a privilege.  We expect responsible and respectful behavior. All students must throw away their garbage and clean their tables.
