You may check out up to four items at any given time. You may not check out any items if you have overdue materials. Once overdue materials are returned, you are free to check out new materials. You must reimburse the library for any lost materials.

  • Reference Books: Do not circulate (occasional overnight use at librarian’s discretion)
  • Audiobooks: 2 week

Collections

The LMC houses a variety of collections. Fiction is organized by genre (Animals, Fantasy, Realistic Fiction, etc.), and within each genre, by the author’s last name. Nonfiction and reference items are organized by the Dewey Decimal Classification System [PDF].


Behavioral Expectations

  • Show respect for fellow Library Media Center users. Quiet talk is allowed if it is not disruptive to classes and other students.
  • Treat library materials and equipment with care.
  • Food, drinks, gum, hats, and personal electronic devices, other than school issued Chrome Books, are not permitted.

The vision of the BCSD Library Media Program is to encourage and facilitate students in becoming lifelong users, evaluators and creators of information.  

This is accomplished by:

  • Selecting and maintaining relevant and current print and online resources to promote reading for personal and educational needs
  • Collaborating with faculty and the larger community to improve student achievement
  • Developing learning experiences whereby students transform information into meaningful knowledge through inquiry and technology
  • Guiding students in becoming effective and ethical users of information who are able to think critically
