After School Hours
The library is open after school Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:00-3:00 unless there is a special meeting going on in the library. Students should sign up before the end of the day using the form on the circulation counter if they plan to use the library after school. They should have a pass from a teacher explaining the work that they will be doing in the library.

Computer Lab

The library supports 30 Chromebooks for use in teaching research, technology and web 2.0 skills. Teachers and students use the computers for class work, homework and for internet research.

Checkout

Students may check out two books at a time.

Students wanting more than two books should check with the librarian, and if they have shown responsible library behavior in the past, more privileges will be given.

Magazines (1) may be checked out for one week.

Books may be renewed as long as there is not a waiting list for the book.

Overdue materials

Reminders are sent home with students once a week.

Materials that have been overdue for 2 months will be considered lost, and a bill will be sent home detailing the cost of the book.

We gladly accept either payment or replacement.

Borrowing privileges will be suspended until the book is returned or payment is made.

If the library book is returned to the library within the same academic year that it was lost, any monies will be refunded.

Damaged Materials

Students will be responsible for replacing any books that have been damaged to the point that they are not repairable.

Parent Volunteers

Wilson Middle School is very appreciative of our parent volunteers. We hope this program will make the many areas of the library program more effective, allowing us to reach and benefit even more students. A library volunteer is an asset to the school, the library program, and their child. Our volunteers come in on a regular basis to assist in the following areas:

Shelving books

Creating book displays and Bulletin Boards

Cleaning tables and computer areas

Preparing new books and magazines for circulation

Assisting with circulation of books using the Destiny online catalog

Reading the shelves to keep them in order

Tracking our various reading programs that are run in the library

Assisting with the publicity, set up and running of the annual book fair, held in February
Assisting with weeding and inventory projects as needed

Training will be provided on an ongoing basis

If you are interested in volunteering in the library, please complete this form which will let us know when you are available, and we can schedule a time for you to begin!

All volunteers are required to complete a CORI form before volunteering in the school. (Cori checks are good for 3 years) If you need a form, please stop by the office to fill one out. Picture ID will be required.
