Forbush Elementary School Media Center 

Mrs. Williams, 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:  This year I am sharing two schools - Forbush and Courtney. I am at Courtney Elementary on days 1, 5, and 6 of the Encore rotation and at Forbush Elementary on days 2, 3, and 4. All students have checkout times with their classes on days 2 and 4 of the rotation.  In addition, the library has an open checkout policy and flexible schedule for students and staff on day 3 of the rotation for those needing to use the library. 


Checkout Policy:  Students in first through sixth grade are allowed to check out three books at a time from the media center.  Students in preschool can check out 1 book and kindergartners may choose two books.  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 six.


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.
