Media Center - Betsy Hodges

to the
North Pointe Library Media Center

Hours of Operation:
Monday - Friday
7:45 am. - 2:25 pm. 

   The goals of the media program are:

  • to assist students in developing the attitudes and skills which will enable them in becoming independent, life-long learners;
  • to assist teachers in developing standards-based curriculum that enhances student achievement;
  • to provide access to materials that support a wide range of student needs, abilities, and interests.

    Checkout Guidelines:

Library books may be checked out by students for a period of two weeks.  They may be renewed during this time, if necessary, but must be brought to the media center for renewal.  There is not a daily fine for overdue books.  However, a student with books that are late will have his or her checkout privileges restricted until either the book is found or a payment for the lost book is made.
Overdue notices will be sent out periodically - usually with report cards and progress reports.
With teachers' permission, students may come at any time during flexible scheduled hours for individual check out.
All students must have their agenda (or library card) when visiting the media center.

Lost or Damaged Books:

Students are responsible for books checked out in their name.
If you lose a book, tell Ms. Hodges, the media specialist.  She will give you time to look for it.  If the book is not found, you are expected to pay the replacement cost.
If you damage a book please let Ms. Hodges know. 
If she is not able to repair the book, you are expected to pay the replacement cost.
All book prices are included in the media center's cataloging system.
*Any book found during the same school year is eligible for a refund, dependent upon book's condition*
