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:  Students have Media on days 4 and 5 of the Encore rotation and will checkout books with their classes. Classes also have scheduled checkout times in addition to those on class days. The library has an open checkout policy and flexible schedule for students and staff needing to use the library all other days of the rotation.


Checkout Policy:  Students in first through sixth grade are allowed to check out two books at a time from the media center.  Students in preschool and kindergarten can check out 1 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 six (once they have gotten AR points for the quarter).


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.
