Library Information and Book Check Out Policy 

The vision of the DJMS library is to empower students to be effective and responsible users of ideas and information and develop a life-long love of reading. By providing both a welcoming, accessible space and relevant, diverse resources, our ultimate goals are for all students to be enthusiastic and critical readers and for the school community to be effective and responsible users of ideas and information through collaboration and inquiry.

  • Students may check out books and materials for a period of three weeks from the day of checkout. 
  • Students are responsible for returning books on time. If a student would like more time to read a book, he or she is welcome to renew the book for an additional three week period. 
  • The maximum checkout is 3 books. 
  • Students will be reminded about any overdue books via email. 
  • Students will be expected to pay for the replacement cost of lost or damaged books.
  • The library catalog and resources are accessible from any device with an Internet connection.

Equipment Checkout Procedures

To assure that equipment will be available when needed, be sure to make reservations at least one week in advance. Equipment can be picked up in the Library between 8:00 and 8:30 and is due back by 4:30 each day.
 

Reserving a Cart of Books for Your Classroom

Teachers may check out a cart of books on a subject being studied in class. Teachers are asked to consult with Mrs. Silerio at least one week prior to the date when the books will be used. This is to ensure that the appropriate materials will be available. At the time of checkout, teachers will be given a list of all books checked out in their name.
 

Library Reservation

Teachers may request a section of library tables be reserved for specific classes on specific days. This should be done at least one week in advance to ensure that space and materials will be available. However, teachers should be aware that since the library operates on a completely flexible schedule, students with passes from other classes will be admitted to the library throughout the school day.
