Forbush Elementary School Media Center
Mrs. Bowser, Media Specialist
Mission: The Mission of the Forbush Elementary School Media Center is to ensure that all students and staff are effective and efficient users of ideas and information.
Hours: The media center is open at 7:45 each morning before school and is open after school until 3:40 on Mondays through Thursdays and until 3:15 on Fridays for students who need to check out books and use library materials. All students have checkout times with their classes on days 1 and 2 of the rotation. In addition, the library has an open checkout policy and flexible schedule for students and staff on days 3, 4, 5, and 6 of the rotation for those needing to use the library.
Checkout Policy: Students in first through fifth grade are allowed to check out two books at a time from the media center. Students in preschool and kindergarten may choose one book. Books can be checked out for a two week period. If more time is needed, please ask for a renewal. Magazines are available for overnight checkout for students in grades three through fifth.
Fines: Books that are lost or damaged must be paid for. If a student pays for a book and then later finds that book and it is still in good condition, the library will refund the money. Students returning a book without a barcode will be charged a $5.00 fine to cover the cost of replacing the barcode. Also, there is a $5.00 charge for lost magazines.
